Native Plant Experience
The Native Plant Experience is set for Saturday in York County, Pa., and five homeowners will open their properties for a self-guided tour, showing how they are using native plants to conserve water, reduce pesticide and fertilizer use and create wildlife habitat.
The properties range in sice from a suburban lot to a 6.3-acre wooded area. The gardeners will be on hand to share their successes and challenges.
Tickets are $10 and will be available at each of the gardens on the day of the tour and the gardens will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Sunday is the rain date.) For a list of the gardens and their addresses, go to the website or call 717-840-7408.
It is an opportunity to learn how to make your yard more enviornmentally friendly, and it is sponsored by the Penn State Cooperative Extension and Mid-Atlantic Landscapes.
