Event: National Planting Day – Native Plant Celebration

National Planting Day – Native Plant Celebration
Sep
13

Calling all wanna-be native plant gardeners! Join us on September 13, 2017 at 6:30 PM for National Planting Day. Keep Pearland Beautiful will host a tour of the Yardwise Demonstration Garden at 5800 Magnolia, 77584.  Park in front of the Stella Roberts Recycling Center, the garden is outside the fence on the east side of the center.

This tour will highlight the use of native and adaptive plants and showcase the new labeling system installed at the garden.

Keep America Beautiful’s National Planting Day, a fall initiative of the Great American Cleanup, is a national call to action designed to mobilize Americans to support local ecosystems by planting native species.

National Planting Day celebrates the critical nature of native plants and trees in enhancing biodiversity and rebuilding ecosystems. Beautiful public places transcend aesthetic appeal to positively impact the lives of area residents, visitors, businesses and institutions. Green spaces restore our communities, helping to make them more environmentally healthy, socially connected, and economically sound.

Come out and visit the Yardwise Demonstration Garden and see beautiful native plants and how they can be used in your own garden.
