Consider Sharing your Native Plants
If you are splitting your native flowers consider sharing with the garden. We are looking for donations of native flowering plants for the Fremont Township Community Garden. Our garden would like to do its part to support the native pollinators that are an integral part of our food web. Native plants provide food and shelter for these insects, while helping produce food for us. If you have extra native plants, such as echinacea, yellow coneflower, bergamot, boneset, blazing star, compass flower, little bluestem or prairie dropseed, please consider sharing with our community garden! Contact Alicia at firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate drop-off.
