You’ll Love Growing Native Plants!

Not only do native plants contribute to biodiversity, they flourish without fertilizers or pesticides and rarely need watering. Because of their deep roots, they absorb and filter excess rainfall—helping to provide clean water for everyone. Native plants help us celebrate the things that make our region unique, and teach us about the world of nature. Bring the tranquility, peace, curiosity,  and connection you find in nature into your life by means of your immediate environment. I bet you’ll make some friends along the way…

“If suburbia were landscaped with meadows, prairies, thickets or forests, or combinations of these, then the water would sparkle, fish would be good to eat again, birds would sing and human spirits would soar.” Lorrie Otto (author, educator,  environmental activist and Wild Ones founding member and Lifetime Honorary Director)
