Naturalized gardens encourage biodiversity, pollinator and wildlife habitat, as well as deep rooted plants to help sequester carbon and reduce or eliminate the need for mowing, watering, pesticide, and fertilizer use. Yet, all over the country, bylaw enforcement is targeting natural gardeners and mowing down wildflowers.
There are a growing number of environmentally minded Canadians and a community of natural gardeners who are prevented from naturalizing their yards due to bad bylaws and bylaw enforcement. Challenging the constitutionality and legal application of these bylaws will allow the freedom for Canadians to foster an ecologically sound landscape and contribute to biodiversity and sustainability.
Please donate to this precedent setting legal challenge to allow Canadians the right to protect nature in our own backyards.
