Community Education and Plant Sale Day
April 1, 1:30 p.m.

Go Native Forest Hills! The Forest Hills Cultural and Natural Resources Committee and the Cumberland River Compact present to you a FREE Community Education Class on Native Plants.

The class runs from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., and the sale from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Native landscapes are more important than ever! They:

  • Provide beautiful year-round interest
  • Last longer and are less expensive than annuals
  • Require less water than annuals
  • Grow deeper roots that improve soil and water health
  • Provide food to butterflies, birds, and bees

Blackeyed Susans

Among the plants for sale will be: Annabelle hydrangea, Virginia sweet spire, coneflower, black-eyed susan, and native grasses.

Class attendees will receive a 20% discount on plants. Native perennials, shrubs, and grasses will be numbered and offered as follows: 1 gallon pots for $6 and 3 gallon pots for $12.

Register for the class HERE.

Native plants are available to purchase at wholesale prices immediately after the class.

See you on April 1!

Shoppers will have an opportunity to donate to the co-sponsor of this event, the 501c3 Cumberland River Compact by “rounding up” their purchase price. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted.
