Chicago Sustainable Backyard Program

3 May

If you are doing any gardening this summer, you should definitely check out Chicago’s “Sustainable Backyard” program. You can get a rebate for things you are going to buy already (trees, native plants, rain barrel, compost bin) to compensate you for the ecosystem services you are providing with their purchase and installation. There is also a ton of information about what plants to use, why sustainability is important and all the benefits it will bring to you and your community. It’s a great resource; you should read it and then pass it on to your neighbors!
