Transforming front yards, school grounds, public parks, and pedestrian pathways from grass turf to native flower gardens that help pollinators such as butterflies and bees. The most recent project is transforming the pedestrian pathway between Pilkington to Santamonica into an environmentally-friendly garden that will host native flowers and shrubs, and beautify our neighbourhood.
