Quotes

"We have been focusing on putting more milkweed in our restoration mixes" he said. Last year they planted 69 species of seeds, and this year about 500 acres of USF&WS land are on their docket for restoration, he said
..." He has long been interestedin butterflies and told me that the garden itself started the summer prior to their daughter being born. He said, "We knew ahead of time that we were having a littlelittle girl and at the time it just struck me as appropriate to create a natural garden in our backyard. When it started, it was really just a trial and error with various perennials along with a few bird feeders. As time went on the garden grew in size and I really took an interest in learning more about native plants"
"We bring all this stuff into the bin with the combine," he said, "And then we'll spend all winter cleaning that seed down to a finished product."
"The boats photographed were made out of materials taken from Mother Earth and used to serve a purpose. When they became obsolete, they were discarded and have slowly rotted and sank in the muck off Rossville as Mother Earth takes them back."
