Native (or heritage) gardens use plants that have grown and thrived in a specific area of land in order to recreate plantscapes that look and feel like you are walking through a natural environment.
These gardens use native flowers that bees from our area just love! They are both beautiful, colourful, and draw focus to an important ecosystem service that our environments rely on: pollination and pollinators
These gardens provide one of the most important Ecosystem services: Food! Green feet works with the landowner to teach you how to grow and maintain your gardens so that you can provide lots of organic, non-gmo food to your family at little to no cost
The techniques we use can help you to convert large scale conventional agriculture into diverse ecosystems which boast many benefits to the landowner and the environment...
