Fall Native Plant Share
Join Butterfly Project NYC, Bronx Green-Up, and Grow to Learn NYC this fall as we partner up to encourage teachers to include native plants and pollinators in their gardens and curricula. A portion of the event will feature information on starting a pollinator garden. The remainder will focus on how to address issues with pollinator plants that are already established. Following the workshops, prepare to take native plants back to your park, school, or community garden. Plants are available for planting in public spaces in NYC while supplies last. Sign-in will begin at 10:45 a.m. and registration is required. To register, fill out this online form. For more information, e-mail info@butterflyprojectnyc.org.
