So, you’ve removed all of your invasive plants…now what? Join us as we explore native alternatives to include in your garden and other outdoor spaces!
Why plant native? In short – they are the ecological basis that all life depends on! Native plants have adapted to the local climate and soil conditions, meaning they require less water and very little (if any!) fertilizers. They serve as food for native butterflies, insects, birds, and other animals, they provide habitat, promote biodiversity, help prevent soil erosion, and so much more!
