Plant Sale!

April 23 - 25, we're selling Milkweed, Purple Coneflower, and Black-eyed Susans

In order: Monarch Caterpillar on Milkweed, Monarch Adult on Purple Coneflower, American Goldfinch on Black-eyed Susan, Honey Bee on Milkweed, American Persimmon, and Pignut Hickory

Plants Galore!

It's time for our annual plant sale, when we partner with the North Carolina Wildlife Federation's Butterfly Highway program. Milkweed is the host plant for Monarch butterfly caterpillars, so the more milkweed we plant, the more opportunities Monarchs will have to lay their eggs.

We are selling Milkweed, Purple Coneflower, and Black-eyed Susans, all of which make great nectar sources for pollinators. Black-eyed Susans that have gone to seed are also a favorite food of Goldfinches.

The plants are $6 each, and proceeds will go to programs to support Monarchs (and other wildlife) right here in North Carolina!

We are also partnering with TreesCharlotte to give away small trees. They are providing us with Swamp White Oak, Persimmon, and Pignut Hickory seedlings, all of which are native species.

Pre-orders will begin April 21 for Milkweed, Purple Coneflower, and Black-eyed Susans.

Trees will be available starting April 23 and are on a first-come, first-served availability, one seedling per family.

Sustainable Small Business of the Year

Bird House on the Greenway was recently named SUSTAINABLE SMALL BUSINESS OF THE YEAR by Mecklenburg County's Solid Waste Department!

Since before we opened, we have worked hard to minimize our impact on the environment, reduce our carbon footprint and work with the community to promote sustainable practices, and its nice that they noticed.

We were honored along with 7 other local businesses at a banquet at the Foundation for the Carolinas.    Melinda Johnston, of the Charlotte Observer, wrote a great article on our efforts.  Here's a link to her article.

On the Air!

We were recently invited to appear on the Fabulous Francene Marie show to talk about the birds and the bees (and butterflies).  It was a great conversation with a great lady!  We hope she invites us back soon.  Here's a link to the show in case you missed it.
