New Project: Safeguarding the Right of Canadians to have Naturalized Gardens
MARCH 2, 2022 – Naturalized gardens have many community and ecological benefits, including:
- Improving air quality
- Storing carbon
- Preventing flooding
- Producing a natural cooling effect
- Providing habitat for native wildlife
- Reducing water usage
However, habitat gardeners often have to fight local bylaws in order to protect their right to a naturalized landscape. We are appealing a decision against naturalized gardens in Smiths Falls, Ontario. A successful appeal will set a precedent and help other Canadians overcome obstacles by Bylaw Enforcement.
Help us empower communities across Canada to pursue naturalization and do their part to support biodiversity and environmental sustainability.
