This is an opportunity to come out and get involved in our Community Native Plant Nursery Program. As a part of the restoration project we are working on in Rotary Park with the Cowichan Valley Naturalists, we are putting the invite out to the community to help us grow the plants! We will provide the seeds and soil, you provide a corner of your backyard to host a little piece of the nursery. Half of the plants you grow will come back and be planted at the restoration site in Rotary Park, and the other half you can keep and integrate into your own landscaping! This will create a pollinator pathway through our neighbourhoods, providing nourishment for the pollinators and other insect species, and spreading native seeds into the seed bank in the soil. This supports local biodiversity and our local food systems, and helps mitigate ecological collapse.
