On Tuesday November 11, at 9:30AM, the Garden Club of Weaverville presented a program on gardening with native plants, with guest speaker and member Dr. Alicia Hulse.
Alicia discussed the “whys and hows” of gardening with native plants. Dr. Hulse made a compelling case for understanding why native plants are so important for recovering and sustaining the health of our entire ecosystem. We were informed about the 2 projects that have brought us many resources specific to the Town of Weaverville: Invasive Exotic Plant Management Plan and Weaverville Wildlife Habitat.
Attendees were shown the new section of our club website, Gardening with Native Plants. All are encouraged to visit and share our website with the extensive native gardening resources, starter projects, and seasoned advice on “going native” in your own yard. Annotated resources for choosing and purchasing native plants are included with some printable versions and digital brochures.
The meeting took place at the Weaverville Townhall Community Room.
