Remember to thank a veteran this weekend and to remember those who sacrificed for our freedom!

Our very own Stan Zumbrennen is a U.S. Coast Guard Veteran. He shares a story from his days on the water. 

Thank you for your Service Stan!!

We continue our discussion on Urban Farming and Pollinators.

Bats are great pollinators!

Bat Conservation and Management - They might make you go "ewww"  but they're great for your yard. Just don't put one of these bat houses near your backdoor!

Hummingbirds are pollinators too and probably a little more attractive than a bat.

Bees, bees, bees....we need more!
