Our mission states that we are "an environmental organization that promotes the use of native plants in private gardens and public landscapes." Our March meeting focuses on the public side of these efforts: on the resources available to gardeners through grants, certificates, workshops and other support.
We also want to draw attention to the public spaces in our urban parks and greenways. Almost everywhere they offer opportunities to create the kind of landscape that our mission commits us to. We'll talk about the support that the city of Lexington makes a ailable to individuals and groups who want to restore a degraded park space, install and manage a stream buffer along a creek or design and plant a pollinator garden. We will also discuss the rules that govern such undertakings.
