Environmental Concerns

To enable us to partake in an important movement here and abroad, we have some offerings specific to environmental issues. Please come back often for updates and feel free to suggest a site.

 

 

Is it important to use a lawn service? Please choose wisely. This is an ongoing threat to those of us who want to increase our offerings to local wildlife.

Perhaps we are at the top of that line? Please mind the organic and IPM principles so important to us as gardeners.
