Renewable energy and sustainable living were topics at 12th annual event
Jack Kaskel, owner of the Red Buffalo Nursery in Hebron, came to the 12th annual Illinois Renewable Energy and Sustainable Lifestyle Fair last weekend to get the word out about the benefits of native plant gardens.
The Illinois Renewable Energy Association (IREA) held the event Aug. 17 and 18 at the Ogle County Fairgrounds.
“It can be a lot of work in the beginning, but as the perennial native plants develop, their fibrous root systems don't leave room for the annual weeds,” said Kaskel. “That means less work in future years.”
