Welcome to The Backyard Naturalists, the show about anything and everything connected with nature.

The team from Jabebo Earrings joins Debbie and Laurie for this week’s episode of The Backyard Naturalists and in the spirit of reduce, reuse and recycle, we invited them on the show to tall you about their special products. These are earrings made from recycled cereal box paperboard!

Our presenting sponsor, Backyard Birds is the only retail location to offer Jabebo Earrings in Matthews, NC and they’re giving away a free pair to the first person to drop by the store and mention this episode. There’s one pair of earrings available to the first person to stop by and you’re only allowed to win an offered prize once every 90 days.

While recording the Backyard Naturalists podcast, Debbie and Laurie enjoy coffee provided by the Good Cup Coffee Company in Matthews, North Carolina.  Follow Good Cup Coffee on Instagram and look for them at the Matthews Community Farmer’s Market this Saturday morning. 

Connect with the Backyard Naturalists on the Web, Facebook and Instagram.
