Learn how to build a new one in your yard or reinvigorate an older one. Get tips from experts on how to design, construct and restore cool landscapes that attract birds and pollinators and treat a bit of runoff. Find out how to grow the native or edible plants to produce food for us and wildlife, and get access to a ton of on-line resources and expertise on how to make your yard an oasis in your neighborhood.

This is Part 1 of a weekly series from CSN and Friends on tips and tricks for restoring your home ground. In this series, we’ll focus on activities that are simple, low cost, and can be done with materials on hand or found on-line. We’ll also discuss how these activities can engage our families, get us outside in this fine Spring weather and maybe even provide a few teachable moments for our kids. Tune into our new informal weekly webcast series to pick up a few new tricks and maybe share some of your own!
