Plant NOVA Natives is a joint marketing campaign supported by numerous governmental agencies and not-for-profit organizations. Our mission is to educate the community and promote the benefits to water quality and natural habitat of planting beautiful Northern Virginia natives, through the efforts of committed volunteers using multimedia outreach and events, and by working with local growers and sellers of native plants.
To that end, we hope to provide you with the information and materials to promote NOVA Natives on your own and/ or to join us in our collective efforts to educate others and expand Natives-planted acreage within Northern Virginia.
