Luckily, a growing number of people and organizations are starting to promote healthier practices, supporting pollinators, advocating native plants etc.
There are already several ‘Healthy Yard’ Groups. Participants meet together, work with town boards, swap plants, visit schools, table, give lectures etc.
We encourage you to look for a ‘Healthy Yards’ group in your neighborhood, or even start one yourself!
Maybe you are already active in a group addressing sustainability. If that is the case, please let us know if you want to work together, and like to be listed on our website.
Our intention is simply to provide a platform, offer resources and connect people who are interested in promoting healthier yards in their own locality. We know from experience that this contact can be helpful, especially when it involves legislation, homeowner associations or finding the right materials to inform our neighbors.
Local groups also have the ability to share information about local landscapers who offer sustainable practices, or recommend local nurseries that sell native plants.
So don’t wait, let us know what you do to advocate healthier yards.
Or contact us if you are looking for Healthy Yards friends in your neighborhood.
We hope to hear from you!
The Healthy Yards Team
