Gardens matter. Every small act we do adds resiliency.

The mission of the summer-dry project - to help gardeners find those plants that will contribute to the health of the planet, redefining beauty that honors the summer dry climate.

And now, in the midst of tumultuous climate change, we realize it's all the more important that gardeners be stewards of the land, attuned to the local environment on behalf of all creatures. Every small act we do adds resiliency.
