TOPIC:      "Learn How to Create Your Own Native Garden".

Native landscapes provide a number of benefits around homes, businesses,
schools and other community locations.  These include the elimination of
pesticides and fertilizers, conservation of water, reduced labor, creation
of habitat for beneficial wildlife like birds and butterflies, and an
overall balance and sustainability that most landscapes can't provide.
Native landscapes are beautiful and preserve a piece of our natural
heritage.  Learn how your landscape can be in-tune with nature and how you
can make an environmental difference in your community.
