Sowing the seeds for a deeper understanding of the power of nature as a healing space for individuals and communities
The Nature Sacred Principle
A belief in the fundamental truth that exposure to nearby nature environments offering sanctuary, solace, reflection, and mindful interaction delivers transformational benefits to users and surrounding communities.
The mission of the TKF Foundation is to provide the opportunity for a deeper human experience by inspiring and supporting the creation of public green spaces that offer a temporary place of sanctuary, encourage reflection, provide solace, and engender peace and well-being.
We envision a time when every urban community in the U.S. will provide people with opportunities for intimate, intentional daily doses of nearby urban nature through the creation of a system of nature spaces. Until then, there’s the Nature Sacred Principle.
