Sacramento, CA - It’s that time of year: gardeners are gearing up for the annual California Native Plant Society Sacramento Valley Chapter Plant Sale - our big chapter fundraiser and the catalyst for all sorts of activities. As drought and climate change issues continue to affect our daily lives, native plant gardening is especially crucial. Our gardening practices are changing as we learn about the negative impacts of over-watering and chemical-dependent techniques. Our chapters have been at the forefront of showing the benefits of locally native plants: the most ecologically beneficial solutions any gardener can employ. They are naturally low water use solutions; do not require chemical fertilizers and pesticides; provide a unique caterpillar-host relationship to allow for abundant butterfly populations; provide the best nectar, pollen, and habitat for butterflies, bees and birds; and give a sense of place that no other plant palette can provide. We will have hundreds of species from Elderberry Farms, Cornflower Farms, and Hedgerow Farms.
