2018 Fall Native Perennial Planting
NFEC is very excited to offer everyone a chance to improve their gardening skills, add even more natural beauty to their property and at the same time increase the amount of food for our Pollinators (bats, bees, birds, butterflies, etc.) which are so important to everyone’s health and well being.
With three levels from which to choose, you will be replacing either a 5’x5′, 7’x7′ or 10’x10′ area of your existing lawn with a huge selection of native plants available to you from us at WHOLESALE prices. THIS is a really cool competition.
NFEC is partnering with several local Native Perennial growers and your participation will get you wholesale prices on hundreds of species. Entry level 5×5 commitment is very low, with reasonable pricing for the more ambitious gardeners among us who wish to take on the larger projects.
NFEC will have experienced botanists, gardeners and naturalists available to offer their guidance to help you get the most out of your Native Perennial garden. We are offering a list of existing, local Native Perennial Gardens to visit for inspiration and ideas and we expect this to be a great success for everyone involved.
Get your chance to enter this fun and exciting program on Thursday, August 30, 2018, at the Jamesport Meeting House starting at 6:30pm for orientation, a presentation by a local expert in gardening and a whole lot more, and follow up with your commitment to make your property the best looking on the block!
