Gardening with Native Plants

Gardening with Native Plants

Join South Kingstown Public Library on Zoom and learn how to use native plants to create beautiful, well-balanced, and thriving landscapes. Backyards represent opportunities for our native plants, animals, birds, and pollinators. Turn your garden into a living ecosystem that will provide food, water, shelter, and safe places for wildlife. Learn about ground covers and wildflowers for a variety of conditions.

Registration required. To register, please email bobertello@skpl.org. View event description on South Kingstown Public Library's website.
