On News: Both Letters & Papers

HAT SPRING CHAT with links Page 1Our latest newsletter, HAT Chat is out - you can download the pdf here - and in it we featured Nancy Powell, who recently protected 7 acres of her property with a conservation covenant. 

The Goldstream Gazette featured Nancy and her commitment to conserving her land, which you can read here.  It is a wonderful good news story, and a great example of how one person can make a difference in our efforts to conserve nature in our region.

Of course not everyone has property to conserve, and we each have to find where we can make a difference, but Nancy's efforts can be inspiration for all of us.


We've got Spring Gardening Resources!

Pink Fawn LilyThe Fawn Lilies and Shooting Stars are out here in Victoria, so it must be time to start planting our gardens!  Unlike some delicate garden plants, native species establish well in the wet soil and cooler days of spring.  And while many of our native flowers take a long time to go from seed to flower, the payoff is defintely worth it !  

 To help inspire you, we've been working on the gardening section of our website. There are articles on some of our favorite native species in the garden, such as Pacific Ninebark and Mock Orange, as well as our Gardening with Native Plants guide.  There are also articles on other ecologically friendly gardening practices, such as Lasagna Gardening to re-vegetate areas, building a pond, and organic lawn care.
