|Gardening Nude, by Shawna Coronado|
|Shawna's drought-tolerant community garden.|
|All this in the village easement. What a great way to improve a community!|
|This vertical garden in the backyard dresses up the fence, and saves two pallets from the landfill.|
Shawna's front yard is an example of the potential of a grass-free space. She grows all kinds of vegetables here, many under the partial shade of a large crabapple tree. Basil, cabbage, kale, broccoli, and many other food-bearing plants thrive in these conditions, and look absolutely gorgeous. The front yard not only produces food for her family (and the local food pantry), it reduces rainwater runoff and supports wildlife.
|Wouldn't you like to drink your morning coffee here? In the front yard?|
|Basil and cabbage thrive in a beautiful contrast of colors.|
