This Outdoor Greening webinar series provided information about how to support the birds, bees and other wildlife on your property. Native birds and bees benefit from simple and easy changes that we can make to our gardens. Providing more “habitat” supports these important species that help strengthen the resiliency of our local ecological systems and also provides many personal benefits to us including mental health and spiritual joy. Discussions included:
- The reasons why we should be supporting local birds and the bees on our faith community property and the benefits of a more sustainable and ecological landscape;
- How our prayer, meditation, community food and/or sacred space gardens can attract more birds and bees through easy enhancements and simple changes to maintenance techniques;
- Highlights of local Ottawa programs and resources that can support both your home and faith community garden (including signage that will let your neighbours know about your efforts!).
We would like to thank TD Friends of the Environment Foundation for providing funding to Faith & the Common Good.
