Hundredfold : Nature in its full potential
Over the past few years, we have converted what used to be a dry and barren piece of lawn into a flourishing garden filled with native plants. Now milkweeds, elderberries, and swamp roses have all found their home here. This small garden has a resonating impact on wildlife. In this 100 square feet city garden, we have welcomed monarch butterflies, goldfinches (songbirds), sandpipers (waterbirds), and countless native bees.
Being able to see biodiversity being restored in a few years was deeply inspiring and we hope many others may also be able to experience this.
