The Greenway Native Plant Nursery is home to nearly 30,000 native trees and shrubs. From the very start of their journey with the Greenway Trust, these trees are cared for by volunteers. At the nursery, volunteers pot these trees and shrubs, and after they have grown in our nursery for about two years, volunteers will plant these plants again, this time in their final homes in urban forests, parks, and open spaces throughout the Greenway landscape.
This week, we are potting up Western Red Cedar bare-root plants and organizing the nursery for winter. Come learn how to pot up, and learn what a 'bare root' plant is!
Remember to sign the e-waiver online before the event (link in agenda e-mail). Also, we are now offering Discover Pass vouchers for volunteers at all events in Lake Sammamish State Park — 24 hours in a year qualifies you for a free pass! Ask us at the event for more information.
This is a fun event for everyone – no experience necessary!
