Natural Landscaping Fair

  • Location
    St. Joseph County Public Library Ballroom
  • Description
    Wild Ones South Bend Chapter is working with the St Joseph County Public Library in hosting the first annual Spring Natural Landscaping Fair.
    Local landscape designers will share information and tips for using native plants in your landscapes and gardens of any size. Information on available grants for planting native gardens will be available.
    Native plants are those that have co-evolved with native insects and wildlife and they are deeply dependent on one another. These plants provide food and shelter to insects, birds, and other small animals, which in turn support larger predators. Native plants are the fundamental stepping stones of a healthy ecosystem. Planting native plants helps ensure the biodiversity of a region while supporting our pollinators. Native plants are adapted to local environmental conditions and, once established, they don’t require additional water, fertilizers, or frequent maintenance.
    Wild Ones connects people and native plants for a healthy planet. Wild Ones South Bend Chapter chartered in October of 2021, and works to fulfill its mission through education, advocacy, and collaboration. They serve the Indiana counties of St. Joseph, Elkhart, Kosciusko, Starke, LaPorte, and Michigan Counties of Berrien and Cass.
