Plymouth’s Native Plant Garden Club is Seeking Volunteers
Join the Plymouth Native Plant Garden Club
A year ago, the city of Plymouth planted more than 10,000 plants, shrubs and trees of varying species to provide a home for bees, butterflies, birds, and many more pollinators at the Fazendin Park garden.
Sharon Charles volunteers her time in the garden. Her home backs up to Fazendin Park, and she couldn’t resist the opportunity to get involved.
“I was so delighted that this was going to be happening,” Charles said.
The Native Plant Garden Club is responsible for maintaining the nearly 3-acre area in the park. The club regularly waters and weeds the garden to establish and maintain the native plants. Native plants are adapted to the local climate and conditions, so they are more likely to survive and thrive than non-native plants, and provide food for pollinators.
Also, an experienced volunteer garden captain is on site to provide work direction and instruction. Laura Segala is the volunteer captain.
“It’s the first urban orchard that the city of Plymouth has put in, so it’s pretty exciting. We have all of these volunteers that are passionate about native plants,” Segala said.
