Our No Mow research sites, across Vancouver, are coming along nicely. Over the last few weeks the grass has grown quickly and is now seeding itself, the beginning of the next generation. With these sites, we are able to see what wildflowers will naturally germinate. With almost now cost to input, by the end of the summer, we could have a large amount of wildflowers growing, for free.
Already at these sites, we have seen a great number of beneficial insects (even a grass snake at Fraser River park) calling our urban parks home.
Can these sites be the future support of our native flora and fauna as well as functional spaces for humans?
