News to Share!

Wednesday, February 14th, David attended a luncheon hosted by two local chapters of the Urban Forestry Council. Our design for Keep Denton Beautiful's Project Post Oak received an award! We always say we are the luckiest people in the world, because every day we have the privilege of helping homeowners and other entities restore their community's natural beauty. Satisfaction enough. But to be recognized with an award and glad-handing is OK, too. :-)

I'm dying to announce other news but can't until a few details are confirmed -- please check back!

We have scheduled additional work days at Edna Rowe Elementary School in Dallas, if you're looking for a feel-good project to do your part. Saturday, February 24th, March 24th & March 31st, 8am to noon. Come join us! We'll finish most of the hardscape stuff on 2/24 and hope to start planting in March.

In case you haven't heard, we're writing a monthly article for HOME Magazine DFW. I'll have more info soon about subscribing (since several of you have asked) and, perhaps, back issues of our articles. More writing projects are underway; I hope to make big announcements about some (or all) of them this spring.

The best news of all is, an enormous change we never thought would happen is happening, in real time, right before our very eyes. Residents of and decision-makers for Dallas-Ft. Worth-Denton are taking great strides toward sustainability. People have awakened to the need for 'greening up' their homes and properties, and we're are STOKED (yes, I said stoked) to ride the wave of this much-needed, long-overdue movement. Collin College's Earth Day event this year has grown from a one-day, three-hour event, to a multi-day, multi-hour earthy extravaganza. I'll post details and a link to our event's website very's truly exciting to participate in all these opportunities to raise our collective consciousness about our impact on the planet.

According to the most recent forecast, spring really is just around the corner. I'm all smiles...
