Lunch & Learn (and Plant Sale!)

“Not Just Natives, but Local Genotypes”

Martha Ferguson, owner of Riverview Nursery, will explain what is meant by local genotypes and the benefits they provide to your landscape and community. After her short talk, we will hold a plant sale where you can purchase local genotype native plants.

A plant species can be native from Texas to Quebec, but even small differences in bloom time, drought tolerance, rooting depths, dormancy and hardiness can affect how native plants perform in your garden.  For more information about local genotype native plants visit

The plant presentation and sale will be held outside near our main parking lot at 518 N. Wabash Street. In case of inclement weather, the talk and sale will be held inside at 551 N. Miami Street.
