MONARCH GARDENER'S

BLOG!







Learn how to do your own Neighborhood Milkweed Project, find and raise your own monarch caterpillars, and explore a monarch garden plant list. For details visit the Monarch Gardener's Blog. 



Here's a cute little story of how our family has brought our organic and animal-friendly life style out of the garden and into our home. Meet Noodles, our house rabbit.

 









He gets his very own organic snack garden every spring! And the dill, parsley, carrots and fennel are host plants for the black swallowtail butterfly too! His story is featured here on the Cruelty Free Consumer website
