the event were several incredible displays of green and sustainable garden
solutions which helped consumers see how they might apply green living ideas in
Above you see a special fountain at the Aquascape Inc. garden display. While it looks like rock, it is
actually made of made from post-consumer recycled plastics. Putting the fountain
on top of a rain water collection system is a super green garden idea. Contact

Below you see the Conservation @ Home displays featured by The Conservation
Foundation promoting the use of rain water, native plants, and organic
gardening. The sustainable chicken display was delightful to see as many cities
allow you to own your own chickens now and they offer a lot of "green" value for
your investment. You can compost the chicken waste for your garden beds, plus
having the organic chicken eggs every morning for your family is simply
priceless! To learn more about the Conservation @ Home program, please contact
