We'd be thrilled if you joined but we're not about making money, we're about restoring nature and you can do that right at home in your own yard (or even on an apartment balcony or patio). Monarch butterflies are a "flagship" species but you may have noticed how much things have changed even from the time you were a child. Restoring our environment will enrich your life as well as that of others. Giving back to nature is a worthwhile cause. We're here to offer support, tips, free seeds and plants and information as needed. We are backyard hobbiests, master gardeners, master composters, treekeepers, urban farmers and folks who don't mind getting our hands dirty. We encourage you to challenge the paradigms of traditional "lawns" and instead...replant with low maintenance native plants which provide natural habitats that support the life forms we used to share our environment with for the benefit of all.
