Pledge to Plant Native Plants
Helping People and Wildlife

Please join your fellow congregation members in helping people and wildlife by Caring for Creation. We'll do this by planting native plants in our yards that are suited to the local wildlife, soil and rainfall here in the Maryland/District of Columbia region.

Native plants help protect the local streams and rivers we love and enjoy. These waterways are a source of sustenance for birds, frogs, fish, and butterflies, and a place for children to play. Our actions will protect people who live alongside and downstream from pollution and flooding. All life depends upon water.

By planting native plants we plant with a purpose and put the teachings of our faith into practice. By working together with people of all faiths we can care for the Earth that we share.

Make a pledge today to plant natives in your yard, and we'll provide you with a starter kit of free plants, as well as the information you need for the plants to thrive. We're aiming to recruit 100+ homes—will you be one of them?
