The Chicago Sustainable Backyard Program has received a lot of great attention, and more importantly, participation this summer. We are happy to share with you that the program was recently featured in Gapers Block, thanks to a great article by Chicago’s favorite gardening blogger, Mr. Brown Thumb
The Sustainable Backyard Program provides rebates on resources and tools that will help you transform your back, front and side yard into a sustainable and ecologically diverse landscape. So go ahead and treat yourself to that rain barrel or compost bin you have been meaning to install. The Department of Environmental will reimburse you up to 50% for your effort.
While you’re at your local garden center, check out the lovely range of native plants that will attract a range of beneficial critters to your yard, creating a diverse habitat and sustainable ecosystem-right in your backyard!
Rebate forms are available to Chicago residents for up to 50% off their next local purchase of:
TREES (up to $100 back)
NATIVE PLANTS (up to $60 back)
COMPOST BINS (up to $50 back)
RAIN BARRELS (up to $40 back)
