Ready to help the Earth from your yard?
Then join the Native Backyard Challenge starting May 1st!
The Native Backyard Challenge is a free email challenge for anyone interested in learning more about native plants and how growing them can help the environment.
Each week in May, I will send you an email with a mini challenge to help you get to know the plants in your yard and find opportunities to make your yard more environmentally friendly by growing native plants.
The goal of the challenge is a simple one: at the end of four weeks, I want you to incorporate two new native plants into your yard!
Weekly email challenges include:
- 1st week: Identify the plants you currently have in your yard (or patio pots – no yard needed!).
- 2nd week: Find two potential spots to swap or add in new plants.
- 3rd week: Identify native plants in your area that are great for the environment.
- 4th week: Head to your local nursery and find two native plants to bring home with you.
As part of the challenge, you’ll have opportunities to share photos of your progress with other challenge participants. There will be prizes too!
