Beyond Housing and the Partners for Native Landscaping will be hosting a Native Plant Fair on Sunday, April 30 from 9AM–2PM. The event will be held outdoors at Beyond Housing Headquarters 6506 Wright Way, St. Louis, MO 63121.
Participants can purchase native plants from the Missouri Wildflower Nursery, Forrest Keeling, and Papillon Perennials. If you would like to pre-order from Missouri Wildflower Nursery please contact them directly. Native Landscaping books will also be available for purchase.
Native plant ambassadors will be at the event to offer guidance and answer any questions, as well as educational tablers who are community partners involved in native landscaping that can provide information and resources.
At 10am there will be a guided educational tour of the nearby rain-scaping/bioretention installations along Pasadena Blvd.
For more information, you can visit the Partners for Native Landscaping webpage.
In addition to the Native Plant Fair, Beyond Housing is celebrating Arbor and Earth Day by giving away free trees. The Forestry Department will have free trees on site for 24:1 residents to take home and plant, or you can sign up for a free tree and have the department plant it for you at a later date.
24:1 residents be sure to stop by the Beyond Housing table to learn more about the forestry program, workforce development including vacant lot remediation and jobs, free trees, free tree training, community beautification projects, and sign up to join the Environmental Health Team.
