Outdoor Greening Case Studies and Fact Sheets Published

Writing contract for the FCG Outdoor Greening Resources has been completed including graphic design supervision for both of these resources.  The 10 Outdoor Greening Case Studies and Fact Sheets are available online at the Faith & Common Good Website (scroll to bottom of webpage link for access to these free garden resources: http://www.faithcommongood.org/outdoor_greening).  These sustainable gardening case studies and fact sheets have been written to inspire faith communities to take on Care for Creation outdoor greening projects by learning about local Ottawa garden case studies that include downtown urban community gardens, peaceful meditation gardens and a legacy rooftop garden.  They are also intended to motivate new volunteer gardeners by providing clear instructions on specific sustainable gardens that can be implemented on place of worship properties through the ten fact sheets on topics such as native plants, water conservation, drought resistant ground covers and more.

This was a project near and dear to our heart and we are thrilled that it is available as a free resource for anyone who wants to consider a sustainable and ecological garden!
