Nora Carlson & Lora Hein

We want to live lightly with a smaller carbon footprint, to care for wildlife habitat, mend the harm done by development, and beautify our spot of the planet and we also want to demonstrate to our neighbors another model of how a yard can be making a beautiful impression for people when they walk by.
— Nora Carlson & Lora Hein

Lora and Nora installed a rain garden on their Edmonds property under our Veterans Conservation Corps program. They have both been wonderful advocates for the District’s Community Conservation program and eager to have their property serve as a demonstration site for sustainable living. In addition to the rain garden, they have installed solar panels, sheet mulched their entire yard, and implemented a number of other low impact landscape features. Thank you for helping us demonstrate sustainable landscaping, Lora and Nora!
