Sudden Eco Education Opportunity

Last night we got the word that it was our neighborhood’s turn for City Code Enforcement walks. These are mainly supposed to be targeting absentee owners who let their properties get run-down. But those of us who prefer a landscape centered on native and edible plants sometimes get nervous about code enforcement.

I sometimes forget that just about anything can be turned into an eco education opportunity. And an opportunity to show love for my community.
