Project Description

In 2014, Jim and Nancy Hage attended their first Ripple The World breakfast (Daily Acts’ annual fundraising extravaganza). They were inspired by fellow Daily Actor Judy Mazzeo and her story of how the simple act of transforming a front yard could have profound impacts both at the personal and neighborhood level. Nancy committed there and then to transform their front yard from a water-guzzling swath of turf to a beautiful native and drought-tolerant garden complete with sidewalk benches and community library box. As part of the annual Community Resilience Challenge they employed their good friends at Weaving Earth for design and implementation. The result … amazing! Take a few minutes to watch their story in the video below:
