Today’s Menu: Strategies for Normalizing (And Legalizing) Wildlife Gardens in HOA Communities

March 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Registration opens in January.

It happens too often and in too many communities around the country: A responsible, environmentally conscious citizen takes the important step of converting her lawn to native plants, only to be reprimanded by her homeowners association for growing “weeds,” leaving stalks up for birds, or refusing to use pesticides. But even in an HOA, a native plant garden doesn’t have to be DOA. In this session, learn about preemptive strategies and effective responses when making cases for wildlife gardens in planned communities. Discover simple ways to convert landscapes into spaces that will please both human and wild neighbors in your community. And, when all else fails, learn how to fight back—and even work toward passage of a state garden-friendly law like the one recently enacted in Maryland.

Grab your lunch and join us as we welcome certified CBLP and author of The Humane Gardener, Nancy Lawson, for this free webinar.
