Leon County and Native Nurseries Buy One Get One Native Plants Sale @ Native Nurseries
Sep 21 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
Leon County and Native Nurseries Buy One Get One Native Plants Sale @ Native Nurseries

In an effort to encourage citizens to plant native plants, Leon County is partnering with Native Nurseries to offer a Buy One Get One free sale of native plants for the third year in a row. Native plants are an important part of our eco-system, and citizens can help support native wildlife and pollinators by planting native plants in their yards and gardens. Native plants can:

• Create healthy places for people: By choosing native plants for your landscaping, you are supporting a healthy natural ecosystem and creating a healthier place for yourself, your family, and your community.
• Help the Climate: Landscaping with native plants can help combat climate change. Native trees, like our oaks, maples and pines, are very effective at storing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.
• Provide Savings: Once established, native plants generally require little maintenance. When planted in the right place, they adapt to local environmental conditions – saving time, money, and perhaps the most valuable natural resource, water.
• Save Wildlife: Without native plants, insects can’t survive – taking away the base of the food chain for all of our wildlife. These plants provide nectar for pollinators including hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, and bats, while also producing nuts, seeds, and fruits for all other forms of wildlife.

The sale will be available until supplies last. Up to $100 value per person/per transaction. Offer only valid to citizens, not businesses.
