Jennifer has lived on her 3.5-acre property in Marengo for the last seven years.
She has always had a love of gardening, but her interest in native plants has grown over the last two years since working as TLC’s bookkeeper. She has put in native plants, trees, and shrubs and is even smothering a section of her lawn to transform into prairie over time. She loves knowing that her little corner can make a difference, and using the plants and the insects they attract as a teachable moment for her kids. She encourages others to educate themselves on the benefits of sustainable landscaping by setting up a [email protected] site visit, attending local seminars, or using online resources such as the LEARN! Facebook group (Landowner Ecology and Restoration Network), which is administered by TLC. Kudos to Jennifer for making a difference in her little corner of the county!
