Suburban Wild

People plant flowers and bushes on their land for butterflies to feed on, but seldom plant what their caterpillars need to eat. It is like feeding the adults in our families but not feeding the children.

 

Our small plots of land are tiny nature preserves. I share my 1/8 acre with foxes, chipmunks, rabbits, goldinches, caterpillars, garter snakes, and the occasional coyote. If I plant native plants, there is food for the suburban wild to eat. If I don't use fertilizers, insecticides, or herbicides they get to live. We are the park supervisors.

This show is created by four related artists: Bonnie Mettler; daughters, Ky Mettler and Brett Mettler; and niece Maisie Osteen.
