The importance of Native Plants for Future Sustainability

Habitat loss from destruction, fragmentation and degradation is a threat to native flora and fauna.  Gardeners in urban, suburban and rural residential communities are uniquely suited to create pockets of biodiversity to produce long term environmental sustainability.  

Learn from plant expert, Kathleen Contrino which native varietals of plants, bushes and trees such as milkweeds, spice bushes and oaks provide the best chances for success. As spring is upon us, this is the perfect opportunity to start plotting out what to put into our gardens!
