I personally would LOVE to have one! Who else would? And what would we use for the badge?
Dave, you'll have to take a look at this link in regards to legal technicalities as to the xeriscape logo.

It looks like the logo has been released to public domain: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Xeriscape03.png so something along those lines would make a great xeriscape gardening badge.

That graphic does not scale down to 32x32 very well at all. We will need something else.

Do you think it could be modified to a water drop inside a leaf or maybe a leaf inside a water drop?

Ann: I didn't do any research, LOL ... you gave the link and I just clicked on the xeriscaping logo which took me to that page.

A leaf with a teardrop of water would be perfect ... or maybe the little vine in the ATP logo with a droplet of water?

Oh I see. Is that what yo do when you want to know if something is in the public domain? Just click on the logo & it will take you to another page stating the status?
