Bloggers for Positive Global Change Award

Copyright © 2007-2009. Suburban Wildlife Garden. All Rights Reserved.

I’d like to say a big "Thank you!" to Wild Flora's Wild Gardening for kindly honoring me with a Bloggers for Positive Global Change Award. This is one of the nicest compliments anyone has given my little blog and the very first award it’s ever received.

The progressive folks at Climate of Our Future created this award as a way to encourage "blogging with a purpose". Those who get the award may bestow it upon 5 other bloggers who they think are helping to “build awareness among their readership in order to create a more sustainable and enlightened future”.

The 5 bloggers I'd love to give a BPGC award to happen to be from 5 different countries...

* From organic veggies to guerrilla gardening, Andrea at
Heavy Petal in British Columbia, Canada is doing her part to change the world for the better. Andrea gives readers fun, realistic ideas that they can implement in their own lives.

* Libby from
Woodlands World has the best of both worlds in Wiltshire, England: flowers for beauty and a veggie patch with chickens for sustenance! I'm always interested in what project she is doing next. If we all would be half as clever as Libby the world really would be a happier, more creative place.

* At
Mary’s View you can see plants and animals both in and outside her gorgeous North Carolina, USA garden. Mary’s bird feeders and koi pond attract many different kinds of wild creatures to her colorful garden.

* Sanni’s
Stories from the Wild Garden blog is rich and full of color. If you’ve ever wanted to see what a wildlife-friendly garden looks like in Finland, go visit the paradise Sanni has created. Thankfully for me, Sanni writes her blog in English as well as Finnish.

Andrea’s garden blog will give you a lovely taste of life in South Germany. Andrea is a thoughtful lady who cares as much about her Environmental Footprint as she does the beauty of her garden.

Hi Dawn,

I was so surprised to get your "heads up"! Thank you so much. I browsed the other blogs you honored and there is no doubt why you chose them!

I, on the other hand, am not active as some of them. In my own little space in the world, I do my best, like many of us do.

Soon, I will participate in the honoring. Give me a few days.

Thanks again,

Andrea said...

Aw, shucks! I'm honoured. Thank you for your kind words.
