A big ‘Thank you!’ to all who turned out October 11 & 12th! The Friday evening VIP party was great & a lot of folks enjoyed seeing & purchasing the native plants from all the vendors. On Saturday we saw many families with kiddos and dogs. We enjoyed seeing old friends and made new. The free admission on Saturday gave access to the sale to people who may not have had the ability to attend otherwise.
Thanks to Audubon Arkansas for their help in educating the public and providing an opportunity for people to have more access to native plants. We are grateful for the invitation to participate and for their support of Arkansas businesses!
National Pollinator Week is June 17 – 23, 2019. It’s a great time to remind ourselves how important pollinators are to the foods we enjoy on our table every day. As many native plant habitats are shrinking or disappearing altogether, supporting pollinators in our home gardens becomes even more important. There are some great sites for gathering information on pollinators & how to support them. There are a few links below to get you started.

We enjoyed being with all the folks who turned out to hear Rand’s 2 soldout seminars on Saturday, January 26, 2019, at River Valley HP. Thanks to Kevin Grisham and a host of other River Valley employees who made us welcome. We had a great time with friends old & new. There are other great speakers coming up & we recommend you keep an eye on the River Valley Facebook page for updates!

It was another great Audubon Society Spring Native Plant Market held Saturday, April 27, 2019. A really good show for the native plant enthusiast. There was a wide selection of plants for birds & pollinators & the Audubon folks were great (as always!). We understand the Fall Native Plant sale date is set for October 12, 2019.
