Native Plant Fest at Maxie B’s

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is the second annual plant fest as a joint event between the NCNPS Triad Chapter and Maxie B’s.

We will have native plants to give away to attendees (first come, first served), native plant information (why to plant natives, where to purchase), door prizes, and complimentary desserts by Maxie B’s. Highlights of the event are casual tours of our garden beds (which are right in the middle of a parking lot!) and time for conversation with potential members of our chapter. Our hope is to reach folks who are not already “in the know” about how amazing the world of native plants is. We will send them home with complimentary plants and guide sheets for how to incorporate natives into their garden…whether in a pot on an apartment patio or into a larger garden. Every plant makes a difference!

Most of our monthly programs (the first Wednesday of each month) are also posted on the NC Native Plant Society YouTube Channel within a couple weeks (when all goes well). Click on “Playlists” to see programs from each chapter. This fun field event is strictly in-person (no recording). We hope you’ll be inspired to plant more natives wherever you can by experiencing the beauty of the plants and their visitors. Click here to visit the Triad Chapter’s webpage.

Thank you for joining the North Carolina Native Plant Society as a member or guest to learn more about the ecology of our region!!! We look forward to seeing you!!!

We hope you’ll consider becoming a member, volunteering, and/or helping to promote our education and outreach work by sharing with your friends and family. Thank you again!

NOTE: The Triad Chapter has an informal listserv for members and friends in the Triad area who have events, native plants, or questions to share. To join the listserv, please write to Triadco@ncwildflower.org with your name and a little bit about your interest in being on the listserv (so we know you’re a real person in our community). NCNPS members receive notices from NCNPS, but that is not set up for community exchange, as the informal listserv is. We look forward to hearing from you!
