The City of Mary Esther is gardening together for healthy food and improving the community. We plan to encourage a healthy diet based on organically grown produce and good earth management. We will employ the practices of composting, collecting rainwater, recycling and use of environmentally safe pest management. We will give back to the community by inviting schools, community centers and food banks to manage a garden plot for their organization that they can use for their needs.
If you have a place in your yard and would like to assist in the conservation efforts for the most beautiful creatures in the world, then you will certainly want to have a butterfly garden. Many species of butterflies (and bees) are disappearing due to their loss of natural habitat. Creating a natural habitat is one of the best ways to save these pollinators, as well as creating a beautiful and peaceful place for you to enjoy them as they come to visit you.
