June 2019 Update

Another short article to share – At the bottom of this page, please see the short article about native plant gardens you can visit, and share it as widely as possible.

June 29: Training session for promoting native plants (with particular attention to HOAs) – Would you like to encourage your neighbors and colleagues to use more native plants? Would you like to work with your homeowners or condo association? See details and sign up here. Saturday, June 29, 9:30-12:30 pm.

Coming this fall: HOA symposiums – We plan to put on at least two (and probably more) symposiums that will be geared primarily toward HOA managers, Board members, landscape committees, and other decision-makers (though everyone is welcome.) Meanwhile, we are posting ideas as we gather them on the HOA/Condo Association section of our website.

Are there people in your HOA that we should invite? Please send us the contact information for any leaders or manager in your HOA (or condo association) who could be interested in attending, using this little form. We promise not to share the information with anyone else.

Volunteer opportunities –

· Helpers are needed at the June 9 Sustainable Garden Tour, which this year is being held in the Oakton/Vienna area. Sign up here.

· Volunteers are also needed Monday through Thursday mornings in the native plant garden at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. Email Tammy Burke at tburke@nvrpa.org.

Prince William volunteer needed for library displays -

We need someone to put up and take down our displays from the public libraries, at the beginning and the end of the month. We have one reservation already starting July 1 and just need someone to do the leg work. Email plantnovanatives@gmail.com if you can do this (or recruit others to help you do this.)
