Bountiful Cities Loves Your Leaves

Did you know that:

  • Firefly larvae looks just like leaf litter?
  • Ladybug larvae look like leafy little dragons?
  • Queen bees overwinter beneath autumn’s fallen leaves?
  • Many caterpillars over-winter in fallen leaves and debris piles?

Neither did we – until now!

We can help create insect friendly gardens in Haw Creek by gently raking our leaves and piling our sticks into a corner of the garden.

See the value in leaf litter but still want a leaf-free yard?

Bountiful Cities hears you, and they will happily collect your raked and bagged leaves. Simply call them onĀ 828 775 0614 or email them at g2ginfo@bountifulcities.com, and they will collect your leaves for composting at local school and community gardens!
