Native Plant Education Garden



Our second garden work session of 2018 will be spent in our chapter’s Native Plant Education Garden (NPEG). This 1/4-acre urban garden contains over 90 different plant species and is in its 6th year of existence. This is a wonderful spot to learn to ID different plants, develop planting and maintenance techniques you can use in your own garden and to socialize with your fellow RCWO members. We have fun and learn at the same time! Snacks will be provided. It is very important that we work on this garden two times per month to ready it for our chapter’s popular July open house and native plant sale. Dates and times will vary each month to encourage participation.

Tools/supplies suggested if you have: Sturdy gloves and foot ware, pruners, shovel, rake, kneeling pad, drinking water.

Goal: Prune back and clean up last year?s growth. As we thin out some of the plants this season, there will be opportunities to take home free plants for your garden!
