We started the process of certifying our five BANG gardens as wildlife habitats through the National Wildlife Federation this past summer.
Yes, bees count as wildlife!
The process is doable and I recommend all urban gardens consider certifying too.
Find out about the process on the NWF site at:
Urban gardens offer havens not only for human animals, but animal animals: birds, snails, bees, butterflies, spiders, and sorry, but true, rats.
There’s lots to eat, places to raise your family, and hide from predators. Our Bear’s garden on heavily trafficked Flatbush Avenue offers a green alternative to the city animals in our midst.
We love that we are an oasis in such an urban neighborhood.
