The Community Garden- A Backyard Wildlife Habitat!

Your community garden is now a Certified Wildlife Habitat! One of our gardeners gifted the "B-Patch" (and the city) with a donation of a NWF WILDLIFE Habitat Certification. And that does not mean Nancy at our potlucks! What does IT mean? Well, nothing in the way of any changes, just that the community garden will provide habitat, food and water for the urban wildlife that already lives there. Just check out the Bird house, we have a family of birds living there!
