There was deficit of more than 12 inches in rainfall during 2016 that had substantially dropped our water table, and reservoirs were at an unusually low levels. Let's strive to CONSERVE WATER.

    Use drip irrigation

    Design rain gardens

    Mulch trees and shrubs

Indiscriminate use of chemical pesticides is raising havoc among our pollinators. Some bee species are approaching extinction. Let's strive to ASSIST POLLINATION.

    Avoid chemical pesticides

    Plant native perennials

    Cluster flowers by variety and color

    Plant successive blooms for all Seasons

 

There are many ways to grow plants in our own gardens, in community gardens, and in our town parks without resorting to chemical sprays and fertilizers. Let's strive to GARDEN NATURALLY.
