Seattle Life in the Yard

Sustain biodiversity: garden with native plants.


This website is an experiment in sharing the work and passion I have chosen as a productive gift to the creatures with which we humans share this planet. The Anthropocene is ramping up to full expression and our ecosystems will start to fail, but we can mitigate some of the loss if we increase awareness and work to reverse some of the damage. We can do easy simple things such as changing our choices of plants, planting more native trees, shrubs and forbs, as well as minimizing lawns and gardening for wildlife instead of just for garden fashion. These activities can all make a difference for the birds and butterflies and other creatures that could share our yards and enrich our lives if we let them.
