May challenge: Install a rainwater collection system
Turn stormy weather into dollars in your pocket! If you’re an avid gardener, or even just enjoy having beautiful flowering plants for the summer months, a basic rain collection system reduces the amount of water from your taps to keep your plants alive.
Learn from Pete and Megan how to install your own rainwater collection system.
April challenge: Plant a tree
We’re celebrating Earth Day all month! And there’s no better way to support this year’s theme, "Invest In Our Planet," than to plant a tree in your yard. Trees provide beauty, shade and homes for wildlife and help clean the air. Be sure to pick the right tree for the right location, soil and exposure. And always call 811 before you dig.
Do you know how to properly plant a tree? Let Pete and Megan show you below.
