Grow some native plants and give pollinators a helping hand!

Growing native plants in your yard or garden benefits pollinators and other insects as well as the birds that depend on insects to feed their young each spring.

Many native plant seeds need a cold period outdoors before they will germinate, so now is a great time to plant them. We will provide everything you need: pots, soil, seeds (for either sunny or shady locations), and a bit of hardware cloth to protect your seeds once you bring them home.

The seeds are purchased from Wild Seed Project and are easy to grow. They include:

  • Asters (four varieties)
  • Bee Balm
  • Bowman’s root
  • Blue-stem Goldenrod
  • Common Milkweed
  • Pearly Everlasting
  • Red Columbine

All ages are welcome to participate in this family-friendly program!

What to bring

You will need a mask and warm clothes for the weather, as we will be working together at the picnic tables outside. We ask that all age-eligible participants be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

How to register

There is a materials cost of $12 per person. To register, use the button below. Once you submit your registration you’ll receive an email with a link to join the program.
