Do you know of any residential gardens in the MMWD service area to participate in the Bay-Friendly Garden Registration program? Plant enthusiasts, wildlife gardeners, urban food growers and other sustainable gardeners are encouraged to apply. Bay-Friendly gardeners can make a real difference by inspiring others to use environmentally friendly practices and by providing neighborhood models of what Bay-Friendly gardens can offer.
Selected gardens also may be included in the 2010 Eco Garden Tour on Saturday, May 15. If you’re interested in being on the tour, please submit a Bay-Friendly Garden application no later than February 10, 2010.
Registered Bay-Friendly gardeners will receive a colorful, aluminum garden sign (100% post-consumer) to show their commitment to protecting the environment, as well as a copy of Bay-Friendly Gardening: From Your Backyard to the Bay.
