Plantstock! Buy Native Plants For Your Fall Plantings. Learn About Them Too!
October 8, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
WE ARE DOING THE RAIN DATE! SEE YOU ON SUNDAY THE 8TH, WHERE WE ARE EXPECTING SOME ACTUAL SUN!!!
Fall is a great time to plant, and to buy native plants! They’ve had a summer to grow and are starting to “wind down” for the winter. Give your native plants a head start for spring! Come to Plantstock at Hamlet Organic Garden, a working all natural farm and a community fixture for over 24 years! We love H.O.G. So will you!
Buy native plants from the following organizations: The Long Island Conservancy and Rewild Long Island. What native plants would you want to see there? Make your requests below and we will look to accommodate!
In addition, the following organizations will be on hand to talk plants, native and invasive, along with best practices for growing and tending:
Owen Williams of Native Meadows will speak about …. Native meadows! More and more, people are choosing a native meadow over a traditional (pollutive, invasive, wasteful) lawn. We will even be interviewing our plants so they can tell us a little bit about themselves!
What Do I Have To Tell You?
Owen will find his audience with the following organizations:
CEED (The Center for Environmental Education and Discovery)
Women In Nature
The Long Island Conservancy’s goal is to facilitate a growing movement to go native. This goes way beyond a matter of simple aesthetics. For local wildlife, it is a matter of survival. Without native plants, there is no habitat. We are seeing the results of that.
We can reverse that. So please come to H.O.G. on Oct 8th 2-5. Buy native plants. Get to meet them. Meet the humans too. Plant people, that’s us.
The Long Island Conservancy will also be discussing the threat posed by invasive plants as part of The Dirty Dozen Campaign, which showcases the worst invasive plants on Long Island.
There will be live music, and of course healthy food at Hamlet Organic Garden! There always is!
