Sustainable Land Care
“In the past, we have asked one thing of our gardens: that they be pretty. Now they have to support life, sequester carbon, feed pollinators and manage water.”
— Doug Tallamy, Homegrown National Park
It’s time to look at our landscapes differently
Every piece of land has a role to play in our environment. Our yards and gardens can be a part of the solution to urgent conservation issues like climate change and pollinator declines when we choose practices that help to contribute to a healthy ecosystem with clean air and water.
The Standards for Organic Land Care encompass these sustainable and regenerative practices, and can be used by homeowners and landscape professionals.
