The Beauty and Environmental Benefits of New England Native Plants

Join us on Tuesday, March 19, when Barrington Garden Club's speaker will be Ramona Silk, BGC's Horticulture Chair. She will highlight some of her favorite New England native plants that can thrive in our gardens. Choosing plants for landscaping that will be reliable, beautiful and environmentally sound choices can be difficult. Ramona will inspire you to opt for native New England trees, shrubs and perennials by highlighting their beauty and function, and explaining how native plant choices benefit local bird, bee, butterfly and other pollinating insects. She will also address some common invasive garden plants and offer native alternatives that will not cause harm to the environment.

Refreshments are served at 12:00 noon followed by a brief business meeting and our inspiring program.
