What is Live GALACTIC? 

We are a Non-Profit in Ocala, FL helping individuals and corporations contribute to their community through volunteer led projects! 

Most of our projects to-date have focused on Up-Cycling to create habitats for pets and wildlife. 

 These projects benefit both the animals and humans of our community!

What is Up-Cyling? Google defines it as reusing discarded objects or material in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original. Can you think of anything better than creating value from someone’s discarded materials?

Can’t think of any ideas, take a look here!
