I would like the public to understand that we are not ‘lazy’ homeowners just because we are not growing a conventional yard. I would like to show people that there are other options to sterile, grass-filled yards that require massive amounts of fuel, fertilizers and water. I would like to show people how quickly nature can return to a yard and how beautiful that yard can be.
Favourite things/unusual features:
Seeing not only the common European honey bee foraging in my yard, but as well the many natural bees and pollinators. I also enjoying finding frogs buried in the clover yard and birds searching for insects.
