Gardening with Nature promotes the planting of native plants as the base of the food chain that supports all wildlife including pollinators vital to our agriculture. The native ecosystems in the Western Hemisphere have developed independently for over 80 million years. Microorganisms in the soil, plants and animals evolved together to create a balanced system. The balance has long been disturbed by overdevelopment, pollution, garden chemicals and the planting of lawns which require mowing, irrigation, and chemical inputs.
We look forward to hearing from State Presidents or their Chairmen who wish to participate in this program.
