March Creation Care Eco-Tip:

March is the perfect time to plant vegetables in your own backyard so you can enjoy homegrown tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers in just a few months! If you would like to plant an organic garden, visit Native Nurseries to buy organic plants suited for our area, and talk to their experts for advice.

Here are a few tips from your Creation Care Team: 

  1. Your site is very important, so make sure it gets full sun, is close to a water source, and that you enrich the soil with compost.
  2. Raised bed kits are a quick way to prepare a garden site and widely available in stores now.
  3. Instead of using pesticides, since they are harmful to the earth and humans, a simple solution of two tablespoons of dish soap to one gallon of water can be sprayed directly on the leaves and then rinsed after two hours to remove bugs.
