Healthy Gardening

If you are lucky enough to have a garden or yard, you know how rewarding it is to prepare vegetables grown in our own backyard, see the flowers we planted in bloom, or just sit back in a lawn chair, relax and enjoy nature. Gardens offer a wonderful space to play and can help relieve stress.

Why not make our gardens a true haven of health by conserving water and minimizing the amount of synthetic chemicals we use and instead adopting some “Earth-friendly” gardening practices like composting and less toxic pest control?

Gardening Mother Nature’s way is not only healthier for our families and the environment; it also reduces waste and can save water, time, and money! For more information about creating sustainable gardens and landscapes, check out the Monterey Bay Friendly Landscaping program
