At present, I only have a patio to plant on in containers, I do have a hummingbird feeder that is well used by the hummers, and I try to keep my little garden organic and am planning herbs. I have frogs and lizards, butterflies and dragonflies as well as blue jays, wrens and sparrows dropping by. The doves are nearby as is a squirrel down the block. Thanks for an informative article.

That’s pretty impressive! Sounds like wildlife likes your little sanctuary. I am also working on it :).

Great ideas here. At the moment I’m really excited by the potential of greening buildings and cities. I wonder how people who are renters rather than homeowners can contribute to this, though.

Hi Tegan,
Even when renting (I myself do too), you can grow native plants/herbs/veggies on windowsills. Or perhaps talk to the owner of the building or homeowners’ association about possibilities of bringing more plants into your neighborhood. It depends on your situation and the country you live in but it’s worth to try.
