RCWO Native Plant Education Garden (NPEG)

 

Native Plant Education Garden (NPEG) ?  920 Cherry St SE (In front of the Inner City Christian Federation building (ICCF)
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. To read the history of our Native Plant Education Garden, click here.

Please contact Amy Heilman if you have any questions at gardenchair@rivercitywildones.org.
