The Native Plant Alliance will host its 4th Annual Native Plant Festival
This free, family-friendly festival celebrates plants native to our Cape Fear area and
helps you learn how to incorporate them into your own garden plans.
There will be activities for adults and children, local native plant vendors, a seed swap, displays and
hourly presentations by local horticultural experts.
Singer Susan Savia will perform songs for children, and food trucks will be open for lunch.
Children will be able to make birdhouses from recycled items and learn all about birds through
Cape Fear Audubon Society’s “Discover the Wonder of Birds” interactive display.
Exhibitors will offer information on things relating to plants and pollinators, and
interactive activities for children will include a caterpillar guessing game.
Come enjoy a day in the gardens, especially the Native Plant Demonstration Garden
Individual plants are labeled, handouts explain what growing conditions suit each one, and
Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer your gardening questions.
There’s no easier way to see what native plants you might like in your own garden!
