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 beginning to pot up our bare root plant material. Come learn how to pot up, and about what a 'bare root' is! Also, there will be an optional tour of habitat restoration sites throughout the State Park at the end of the event.
This is a fun event for everyone – no experience necessary – and we are looking forward to organizing with you. Remember to save time morning of and sign the waiver online, link in agenda e-mail.
