5th Annual Native Plant Garden Tour
Saturday, October 11, 2014
in south Brevard County

Conradina Chapter of Florida Native Plant Society, south Brevard's chapter, will host their 5th annual Native Plant Garden Tour on October 11. Five to six homeowners, whose yards are landscaped with 80 to 100% native plants, volunteer to allow a few hundred visitors to tour their yards. Several yards have been on the tour a few times to show how they mature and are maintained. Both mainland and beachside yards are featured. Please join them for the tour.

TICKETS in the form of a brochure are only $5 each.

Palm Bay house landscaped for veteran

The Conradina chapter also helped landscape a house that was purchased by the city of Palm Bay in order to rehabilitate it for a wounded veteran. With donations and labor from the chapter, the front yard was landscaped with all Florida natives, and a native American elm was planted in the back yard. Several members also helped with painting the house and general yard clean- up. A second house is already in the pipeline and the chapter will be engaged in that as well.
