Certified Wildlife Habitat with the National Wildlife Federation
Human activity has changed and eliminated habitat, locally, and on the
global scale, and birds, butterflies, and other wildlife are pushed into
ever-shrinking wilderness areas. Providing a sustainable habitat for
wildlife begins with plants. Creating a wildlife garden reverses some of
the human-caused habitat destruction that is hurting wildlife. Our wildlife
garden includes and what a Wildlife Habitat needs: Food (seeds, nectar,
fruit, pollen), Water, Cover, Places to raise young, and Sustainable
Practices. How one manages their garden can have an effect on the health of the soil, air, water, and habitat for native wildlife as well as the human
community. To learn more visit:
That is it for now, but we have more projects in the works!
Little Free Library
Little Free Library: To give back to the Community and support education -after all our Garden is on college grounds, a Little Free Library (Charter
#99333) was added. The Library was hand built and installed by Jim.
Little Free Libraries are a global phenomenon. The small book exchanges
number 60,000 around the world in 80 countries — from Iceland to Tasmaniato Pakistan. Now, our Little Free Library will join the movement to share books, bring people together and create communities of readers. We had hoped to host a grand-opening party as part of the Garden Tour, so that might be in the plans for the 2021 Tour. To learn more, please visit
