Educational materials, research and other interesting resources

You do not have to overhaul your traditional garden - just keep adding a few native plants every year. But if you want to take out some lawn, or design a garden from the ground up - we can help. We have helped landowners big and small design their gardens. 


If you chose to do it on your own, that’s cool with us too. Actually we will help you think about it - here are a few resources.


Xerces Society's tube channel - more presentations than you could ask for 

Field Museum’s Creating a Monarch Habitat in your Midwestern Garden handout and another site on native plants care 

Information about native plants from Chicago’s own Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum , Chicago Botanic Garden and Morton Arboretum

Books by Dr. Doug Tallamy
