Help support biodiversity by growing native plants in your garden.
A variety of native perennials grown by volunteers from seed collected at the Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens will be available. We have a wide selection of new species this year and all of our plants will be hardened off and ready to go in your garden!
Nurseries in attendance will include Baldwin’s Nurseries, Fernwood Plant Nursery, and Beneath the Boughs Woodland Plant Nursery and Pottery. Learn more about ecological landscaping by stopping by the Helping Nature Heal Inc. booth, and put your name into a draw to win a backyard composter from Valley Waste-Resource Management.
Growing native plants is a small way to contribute to the restoration of our landscape, to provide food and shelter for native fauna, and to make a small contribution to the earth’s seed bank for future generations. It also helps you to identify them in the wild – as you get to see them growing through all phases of their life cycle. And they are usually maintenance free, provided you match the right plant to your unique micro-environment.
