The Abundant Backyard
At the Green Living Showcase, The Abundant Backyard is sponsoring Potomac Conservancy Native Tree Nut collection for stream and riverbank restoration. Collect all those acorns, hickory, pawpaws and other native nuts from your yard, and drop off this weekend at Abundant Backyard tent!
The Abundant Backyard offers a range of home and garden gifts all produced with the health of our watershed and local food sustainability in mind. Choose from unique garden benches, raised beds and bird houses all made of reclaimed wood and locally harvested starter seed kits for creating butterfly gardens. Give thanks for Maryland’s Abundant Backyard with a Thanksgiving Harvest gift basket of quality locally made items and food. Selected highlights include Maryland’s finest Banner Bee sustainably produced honey and beeswax candles, Natural Reflections photography’s eco-note cards of native plants and butterflies, a certificate for two to tour and taste Maryland’s award winning Black Ankle sustainable vineyards all packaged in locally handcrafted oak crates from Maryland’s 130 year old Day Basket Company. Fall is a good time to plant a conservation landscape- purchase sampler collections of native plants – grasses and ferns.
