Your Lawn is Dead Inside  

Once a symbol of the aristocracy and later achieving the American dream, lawns are now recognized as artificial and resource intensive biological deserts. Learn about getting started with native plants to correct the monoculture of the lawn! Plants native to the local ecosystem provide habitat and food for all types of wildlife, are adapted to the local growing conditions, low maintenance and beautiful! With Deb Greene of Driver Street Nursery in East Durham.  

Deb Greene is the Chief Bottlewasher at Driver Street Nursery, a small mom and cat nursery in East Durham.   With her intrepid (but lazy) Assistant Chief Bottlewasher, Socks, she propagates native plants and heirloom vegetables that do well in the area (i.e. her yard) and sells them to the public in the spring and fall.
