These are some common phrases you might hear in relation to green. The color may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about or hear the word, but green can apply to many things. Join the Live Healthy Live Well 6-week “Think Green...It’s Not Just a Color” email wellness challenge to broaden your ‘green’ thinking.

    As home gardeners, it may seem that what we plant in our gardens doesn’t really matter. However, when you choose the right plant, put it in the right place, and work with, not against, nature, you can  transform your home landscape into an island of habitat for insects, birds, and other wildlife. You’ll leave this program inspired, informed, and prepared to improve our world - one garden at a time.
