Create a home garden to nurture nature!
Sierra Club North County Group (NCG) invites you to join the Nurture Nature Neighborhood Network as we plant native plants, house by house, patio by pation, neighborhood by neighborhood, for the benefit of butterflies, birds, pollinators, people, and all beings!
We learn, plan, and plant natives together and keep track of our collective effort to increase ecological productivity in our own back (and front) yards, patios, and balconies.
It doesn’t matter how large or small your planting area is. Even one native plant can benefit many species. For example, one oak tree helps 163 butterfly species or one Fuschia-flowered gooseberry can help 71 species. Even the diminutive California aster can help up to 10 species.
There is a lot to learn so please don’t be overwhelmed. Here’s our step-by-step approach
