Longfellow’s Greenhouses in Manchester, ME has partnered with us and is offering 10% off any item on our recommended native buffer plants list found here.

To allow the YCC to be self-sustaining,  we ask landowners to cover a minimum of 25% of our costs for project construction. The cost of materials is the full responsibility of the landowner. This enables our organization to continue protecting the watershed into the future, while providing YCC services at a low cost for landowners. We welcome additional donations above this amount, as they enable us to complete more projects.

Conservation projects typically require one-half to two days’ work to complete. The table below provides an example of the average costs for a sample project requiring one-half day’s work.
