In Person: Why Native Plants Matter: Beauty, Biodiversity, and Resilience

September 23 @ 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Join Wild Seed Project founder Heather McCargo at Philo Ridge Farm in Charlotte, Vermont for a compelling presentation about the many reasons to care about our region’s native flora and how we can bring these native plants back into our developed landscapes. Native plants are essential contributors to our local ecosystem and do not need the high inputs of water or nutrients of commonly cultivated plants, making excellent additions to our gardens. Heather will share how the nursery trade has impacted native plants, including loss of genetic diversity and cloning, and how we can support our native flora by planting seeds from native plants.
