Growing native plants and trees from seed is one of our main goals. Native seeds and plants are important host plants in our community and personal green spaces. Native plants are important host plants for our local pollinators. For example, milkweed is the only plant a Monarch will lay her eggs on! Supporting an eco-friendly environment, enjoying nature and promoting a viable habitat for our pollinators is a key goal for us.
Keep an eye out on our Events page, as well as social media for days we have seed exchanges or plant sales! We also have an annual summer compost day and many community events we are excited to share!
