Doug Tallamy has teamed up with a marketing woman, who was inspired by one of his lectures. They created a website to spread the message of the Homegrown National Park idea. That is by reducing lawns, planting natives and creating habitat, we begin linking useful ecosystems. National Parks are wonderful, but they are too few and too fragmented to help save our declining biodiversity.

Nice find Martha! It will be great if this Homegrown National Park idea catches on.

It certainly would be! It’s very much a common topic among my gardener friends in NYC. We have lots of diversity here. Probably because we don’t have yards big enough to have giant lawns. Now if I could just win the battle against boxwood! But seriously, I slip native plants into almost all of my clients gardens and so do many of my colleagues.
