Cortada Projects uses the power of art to engage the community in learning about and addressing important ecological concerns including climate change, sea-level rise, and biodiversity loss. By using art's elasticity to reach across disciplines, Cortada Projects aims to build community and transform citizens into stewards of the environment.
help us plan and plant for the future of miami
Help prepare Miami for rising seas by planting a salt-tolerant mangrove or joining our Underwater Homeowner's Association! Visit us every Sunday at the Pinecrest Gardens Farmer's Market to find out how vulnerable your home is to sea-level rise and to take home your own red mangrove propagule. On the first Wednesday of every month, come to the Hibiscus Gallery at Pinecrest Gardens to get involved in the Underwater HOA, create your own elevation-marked yard sign, and work to create a climate-literate South Florida.
