The Sustainable Backyard Tour 2013
See firsthand how homeowners in St. Louis City and County are transforming their yards from energy intensive, unsustainable lawns to heavenly havens of green!
The third annual Sustainable Backyard Tour is set for Sunday, June 23rd from 11 to 4 p.m.
This self-guided tour opens the gates to private yards and gardens so that attendees can ask and learn, pick up new ideas, and share inspiration. It's about converting unproductive, high-maintenance lawn and pavement into something more useful and restorativeboth to the earth itself and the human spirit.
Tour sites showcase a range of green living practices, including low-impact lawn care, composting and using recycled materials creatively, organic gardening, chicken and beekeeping, gardening with native plants, mushrooms, fruit & nut trees, as well as rainwater conservation, pesticide and herbicide reduction, renewable energy production and backyard habitat creation.
A sustainable backyard offers the opportunity to provide food for our families, wildlife habitat, relaxation and beauty, all while minimizing impacts on the environment and the communities in which we live.
