On the day of winter solstice, representatives from EPAC, DCNR and Kind Earth Growers came together to explore how we could work together and support the growth of native plants. Native plants not only support the local ecosystem but assist with erosion control as well.
The project will include collecting, “washing” and planting local seed as well as invasive species removal. A timeline is currently in the planning stages and we will reach out with volunteer opportunities as they become available. The entire process will take no less than 3 years from sow to grow so we are in it for the long haul!
About Kind Earth Growers: Kind Earth Growers is a wholesale nursery, in Ottsville PA, founded to meet the demand for native wetland and dry-site perennials used in ecological restoration, storm-water management and functional landscape design. The majority of their seed comes directly from the local area and then finds its way throughout the country.
