Bevin Cohen, Small House Farm

Discover the magic of native plants and bring your garden to life! Get your garden party started with Shubber Ali, founder of Garden for Wildlife. We’re talking with Shubber about growing native plants, how native plants support our ecosystem and what you can do to create a little wildlife sanctuary in your own backyard!

Shubber Ali is the CEO of Garden for Wildlife, a program that began within the National Wildlife Federation. Garden for Wildlife allows people to make a difference for the environment by shipping plants native to their zip code that support local wildlife.
 
Shubber is incredibly passionate about innovation, nature and wildlife and is on a mission to get as many people as possible to help save the planet, yard by yard. Last year, Garden for Wildlife shipped over 62,000 plants across 38 states and 2,900+ cities in America.
