Certified Wildlife Habitat

As our loyal readers know, TomatoTown is not only a place for heirloom tomatoes, but also a safe haven for all manner of creatures. On a couple of garden tours I’ve done over the years I’ve seen signs touting an area as a ‘Certified Wildlife Habitat’. I always been curious about how the process works, so we recently became a ‘Certified Wildlife Habitat’ through the National Wildlife Federation – just for fun. You pony up $20, answer a few questions about your habitat and you are done. You have to have water, food sources, cover and places for animals to raise their young. We’ve got all that!

To get the cool sign below, we’d have to spend $30, and right now, the gardening budget doesn’t allow for that.
