I originally intended to publish my articles in a book, but decided to go ahead and publish them in a website, since everything is going digital nowadays and I was unsure if I would ever get it to a completion stage for print publication…there always seems to be more to add or edit! Meanwhile people can make use of these green gardening concepts, when it is really needed for the health and future of people, local ecosystems, and the earth itself!

The writing on this website represents many years of work.

    Will be reviewing your webpages for use with our local Idaho Native Plant Society. It looks quite promising. Since there is no chapter in Pullman our chapter in Moscow has quite a few WSU/Pullman members. My husband and I worked there about 20 years and we live on Moscow Mountain.

    I’m interested in planting more PNW native plants, less watering and maintenance.

    • habitatdana says:

      Meredith, I (or my coworker Chris) can help you select native plants at Woodbrook Native Plant Nursery in Gig Harbor!

  8. Lindsey Ravina says:

    I am interested in so much of the information you present here. I would like to get updated information about your articles etc. I am also interested in contacting you about a educational/informational class for a small community that I am a part of. I have taken on the preservation and landscaping of the community which is Salmon Safe Certified, 2 protected wetlands, and several rain gardens. When you have the time please contact me through the email I provided.

    Thank you, Lindsey Ravina

    This is a great start. I am interested in learning about more native plants for a backyard wildlife habitat designation and to plant along a creek. I look forward to seeing more information from you!

    Wonderful website!

    • habitatdana says:

      Thanks Joe, I am pretty pleased. There are a few things I’d like to change but am somewhat limited by the software I chose until I learn more about plugins and some limited coding perhaps. I may be asking for some advice now and then.
