Why Natives?

Why grow native plants?  These ecosystems thrive when given a chance to restore their natural beginnings.  The concept of using native plants for everything from home gardening to widescale revegetation is one of the most important and promising ideas in ecology today.  Once native plants are established, they will take care of themselves and improve the land.

Exotic plants can be appealing, but using them for landscaping can put a strain on  natural resources and cost us time and money.
