Silver Spring Methodist Church, Maryland
Church in Montgomery, Maryland
Wildlife gardens are not just for yards. Gardens can be created anywhere there is space and a motivated person or group. This Methodist Church community in Montgomery, Maryland has come together to create lovely habitat gardens for pollinators and birds. With leadership, creativity, and enthusiasm, each year this site grows its capacity to provide habitat while offsetting their impermeable surfaces by capturing rainwater in cisterns and rain gardens. Recently, they were certified as a Garden for Wildlife site with the National Wildlife Federation. Read more about their process for inspiration.
