WHAT IS GREENSPACE ON 4TH?
The GreenSpace Native Plant Community Garden has a rain harvesting system, a rain garden, and a composting program. There are beds full of native perennials that flower from spring to fall. There is a nursery area for growing new plants, and leaf bins for autumn leaf collection. There is a bird garden providing water and dust to bath in, and feeders with bird seed.
Why native plants? These plants, known to be here prior to European settlement, have evolved to exist in our climate, to co-exist with each other and with local birds, insects and other fauna. Once established, they need little watering. Many native plants are now endangered as their habitat has disappeared over the past four centuries. We will provide a real-time learning experience on appearance, cultivation, function.
