Sustainable Yard Tour Hosts Wanted
Do you live “green”? Do you raise/grow your own food? Do you practice homesteading? Do you keep bees? Raise chickens? Have a wildlife habitat on your property? Have you eliminated toxic chemicals from your yard & life? Do you encourage pollinators? Do you grow native plant species? Have you minimized your energy and water usage?
