“It’s important that if you’re going to plant native gardens, that they be beautiful – because no one’s going to be convinced of their value if they’re not.” Charles Kingsley.
The GCFM President’s Challenge encourages all of us to re-design our garden projects with 50% native plants. We need to communicate the ecological importance of using native plants but, designing with natives can be challenging. Come and be inspired by the possibilities and learn how to create a beautiful and stellar native landscape for your communities and your own back yard.
