Natives plants are a great way to "go green" because they are adapted to the local growing conditions and require less water and intensive care in the garden. Many varieties will attract songbirds, hummingbirds and butterflies and are as useful for strengthening our local ecosystem as they are low-maintenance additions to the garden. Wildflower seeds which have been collected from the Conservancy's gardens and meadows and cleaned and packaged by garden volunteers will be sold.
For more information about the sale or becoming a garden volunteer at the Brandywine Conservancy, contact Mark Gormel at 610-388-8327.
