The Poultney Mettowee Natural Resource Conservation District is holding its annual plant sale fundraiser. A variety of native trees and shrubs for landscaping, naturalizing and foraging as well as a variety of berries and fruit trees are available. There are many benefits to using locally grown, native plants in your landscape. Native plants are more likely to thrive in our regional climate and they provide critical resources for wildlife. Consider these plants for backyard birds and pollinators, stabilizing stream banks and shorelines, or for use in rain gardens. In addition to plants, the sale includes a 2022 calendar featuring photos taken by staff, photographer Scott MacLachlan, and local producers. The calendar is available for early pickup.
Many of the native plants are locally grown at the Champlain Valley Native Plant Restoration Nursery located in Poultney. Through the district, the nursery also provides educational opportunities for local schools and the community. All funds generated by this sale are used to support district and nursery educational and technical programming.
