We’re excited several neighbors have volunteered to show off the sustainable practices in their yards to celebrate Earth Day this year! We’re hoping this tour will help to acknowledge those who are already making sustainable choices, while also encouraging neighbors to give something new a try.
If you’d like to see some local examples of pollinator gardens, rain gardens, rain barrels, lawn-reduction, and much more, please consider registering for the self guided tour that will take place between April 22nd – 25th. You’ll receive the tour guide booklet with descriptions of each destination, and a list of local resources that can help you implement some of the sustainable practices on display.
Discover the easiest way to create a native flower garden to attract butterflies and bees. Find out how to support both adults and young, including plants recommendations that thrive even in yards with deer and heavy clay soil.
Native plants form the cornerstone of our world. They provide food, habitat, and shelter for insects, birds, and other wildlife. Without them, wildlife and humans could not exist.
This talk will define the difference between native, aggressive native, and invasive plants. It will also explain how to design gardens using natives; what colors attract butterflies and bees; and which plants attract the most pollinators.
The talk should help gardeners and homeowners create beautiful and sustainable spaces in which native plants and wildlife flourish.
Join us as we collect and share our favorite recipes – new or old, simple or fancy – in the Long Reach Village Cookbook.
