    I would like my garden contribute to diversity in urban and suburban spaces. I have never used pesticides on the garden. I leave it mostly un mowed, the space that is cut is left longer for most of the summer. There is an abundance of life in the garden, animals and insects (a variety of bees, monarchs and other varieties of butterflies and moths, there are also fireflies, crickets and...

    I love the peace and beauty of the garden, and enjoy the opportunity to observe the interconnection of life. Many types of birds, bees and butterflies visit the garden, as well as rabbits, groundhogs, skunks (we had babies this summer), squirrels, bats and racoons.

    I have always loved gardens as peaceful and restorative spaces. During the Covid-19 lockdown, staying home made me, of necessity, look to our outdoor space for solace and to connect with the nature around us. Really seeing plants and insects and wildlife close up spurred me to support the creatures that depend for their survival on the natural spaces within built environments. I started...

    We live on a shady street with only a tiny area for planting but I wanted a garden with as much diversity as possible. After lots of trial and error, no more bulbs since the squirrels just eat them, we have finally found what grows well for us. We find it is a home for a variety of insects and small mammals and with our bird feeder (not shown) we attract sparrows, woodpeckers and cardinals.

    I've been doing my butterfly and moth garden for several years now. I'm always hoping that it helps support the local lepidoptera. I make an effort to include plants that appeal to moths as well such as petunias and morning glories. I use silkworm frass as fertilizer when I have some available. In my garden this year I planted verbena, lantana, petunias, morning glory, black-eyed Susans, yarrow,...

    I joined the David Suzuki Butterflyway program. There is a school across the street who has had no budget for their garden. They agreed to let me plant a butterfly garden, and we included the kids in the first planting.

    We have two lucious pear trees, one cherry tree, one apple tree. Many types of heirloom tomatoes. This year we've concentrated perennial flowers to attrack more butterflies. This is work of love and presence.

    Gardening is a passion and bird watching is too so creating a beautiful space is an ongoing process to attract more wildlife and enjoy the beauty of nature.

    Welcome to Andie's Garden! I have been tending this garden for three years since my mother, Andie, died in 2020. Before then, her and my father transformed the land around their house (plus the rental property next door) into a little oasis in the city. And I'm talking replacing asphalt with in ground garden beds now rich with years of household compost. During the three years that I have...

    I just wanted to have a property that replaced the biodiversity that urban development always erases and almost never replaces. I also wanted to make it prominent because the ostentatious Italianate paving style that people think is in vogue is the exact opposite of what we need; at least lawns have some respite for nature. Presenting the alternative might inspire others to not feel obliged...
