We pot up seedling and learn various propagating techniques plants. We treat volunteers Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches! We work year-round in the warmth of a Greenhouse in cold months or in the shade of Sycamore-like trees in the heat!
We also work in our demonstration gardens. These are small sized landscapes that show others how to effectively use native plants in their own landscape. We need the help of community volunteers to maintain them. For more information email Chris Lewis at cnpschris [at] gmail [dot] com .
