Pollinator & Native Plants
An emphasis on pollinator-attracting and native plants helps provide sustenance to local wildlife. Pollen and nectar plants like asclepias (milkweed), butterfly bush and lantana attract bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators while seed- and berry-producing plants like echinacea, American beautyberry, juniper and holly are great for attracting songbirds.
Growing your own herbs, fruit and vegetables is delicious, nutritious, and economical! Plus, you can use organic solutions to minimize your family's exposure to chemicals. Whether you're working with a huge homestead or a small apartment, you can grow herbs and veggies - in garden beds, raised beds, or in pots on a balcony or windowsill.
Using all-natural and organic solutions for pest and disease issues as well as fertilizing help minimize impact on local wildlife and your family's exposure to chemicals.
