Thanks to Garden Walk Garden Talk, I found a new garden blog that really caught my eye. You may or may not be familiar with This Garden is Illegal, but I really appreciate the perspective of her Earth Day post. I also just read a post from Patio Patch - she had some profound thoughts and great resources on the subject. All these posts have many links to other garden bloggers and green initiatives. Check it out!
Often, we don't look into the every day areas around us - Garden Talk Garden Walk put this recent post up: Street Trees - How Sad. Dakota Garden planned to change as much of her yard to garden as possible - you can check out her progress from the humble beginnings: Making a Garden from a Yard. Deep Middle always has compelling information about eco-issues and sustainable gardening: Exhibit A-Z for Not Having a Lawn. Here are a few other links with garden bloggers with something on their minds: Fairegarden: Earth Day Rant, Wall Flower Studio Seeds: Happy Earth Day, Garden Daze: Earth Day Week - In Praise of Native Plants, and Mr. McGregor's Daughter: Save the Earth by Saving Open Space.
