birds

Does your church want to care for creation in a way that is easy, inexpensive, and still important? Build a bird house–or a few–to encourage love for and protection of God’s creatures.

Map your assets and plan what features to build into your yard to produce food and attract wildlife. Use your garden map, dream big about what you’d eventually like to see, put it on your plan, then decide what you can realistically do this year. Maybe just a couple of raised vegetable beds, or a butterfly garden.

After you install one or two feeders, it will take a couple of weeks for word to get out. But once a few birds find them they’ll post it on Facebook and start tweeting about it, and before you know it their entire social networks will show up in your backyard.
