Northfield Prairie Partners Chapter of the Wild Ones

Why are you participating in the annual Northfield Earth Day event? We support the goals of improving the environment and stopping climate change to have a healthier world. The more people that learn about the benefits of native plants and begin to transform sections of their mowed lawns into native landscapes, the healthier our environment will be.
 
What kind of sustainable services, expertise or products does your business provide to the community? We promote, support and educate on the benefits of using native plants for sustainable landscaping and gardening.  Native plants have co-evolved with our birds, pollinators, and other wildlife to support and sustain our ecosystem. They rely on each other for survival and keep the natural food-web in balance.  Native plants use less water, don’t require fertilizer, can help prevent erosion,  support our native wildlife and help attract many species of butterflies, birds and pollinators.  A native Oak tree supports up to 500 species of caterpillars while the imported Gingo tree supports only 5. Plant Stiff Golden Rod and Blue Vervain in your yard and you may attract 90 to 100 or more caterpillar species and a dozen or so species of birds.
