Tips & Tricks to Help You Plan, Fund and Plant A Neighborhood Native Garden 

Are you interested in beautifying your neighborhood but don’t know where to get started?  Do you want to plant a garden at the vacant lot down the street but have limited or no funds to do so? Rest assured that help is on the way! During my presentation, I’ll introduce you to local organizations that have programs and resources that can help you with the planning, funding and planting of a neighborhood native garden. Afterwards, you’ll be one step closer to creating a beautiful landscape that is beneficial for wildlife as well.
