Adopt A Week in the Mosaic Garden
The weather is warming up, and we need help watering the garden during the summer months. In between your summer fun, please consider adopting a week in the garden. In just a few minutes, you can water, weed, and check for pests, to help our garden thrive. Groups and Sunday School classes are encouraged to help, and all the veggies are donated to Manna on Meridian. Sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e054aaba62ea1f94-green. Thank you to all of our volunteers!
Spring is a wonderful time to get your hands dirty in the garden and tend to existing plants, or add new ones. Consider this: because of human encroachment, wildlife habitat is on the decline, but if we include native plants in our yards, we can help wildlife survive. When shopping for new plants, visit places like Native Nurseries and make an effort to purchase native plants. Native birds eat native bugs that eat native plants, and without native plants, our natural ecosystems cannot survive. There are steps we can take to support wildlife in our backyards, including providing food, water, cover, places to raise young, and sustainable practices. You can even have your yard certified as a wildlife habitat. Learn more at https://www.nwf.org/Garden-For-Wildlife/.
“Chances are, you have never thought of your garden – indeed, of all the space on your property – as a wildlife preserve that represents the last chance we have for sustaining plants and animals that were once common throughout the U.S. But that is exactly the role our suburban landscapes are playing and will play even more into the near future.” – Douglas W. Tallamy.
