Gatherings — In the Field

Special Programs for Members

Our Gatherings provide a valuable forum for our community to learn from one another and exchange information about creating native plant landscapes. Offered by and for members, these are site visits to landscape projects of interest, whether they are an individual member’s residential garden, a community project managed by a group of volunteers, or an institutional project designed or installed by a professional. These events allow us the opportunity to show off the results of a successful project, to pose questions to others about landscape challenges we face, and to share information so that the intriguing lessons learned by any of us can benefit a larger audience.

All current members of Grow Native will receive invitations to these Gatherings as they are organized throughout the year.
