“Plant ES Natives” Demonstration Sites


In an effort to promote the preservation of the diverse and beautiful ecosystem of the Eastern Shore of Virginia, we will be visiting ALL of the Eastern Shore Natives Demonstration Gardens that have been installed in our community!  On these visits we will develop reports on the accessibility and amenities found at each garden as well as  documenting our plant findings.

These gardens were planted as an educational and conservation resource as a component of the Plant ES Natives Campaign.  We love to garden, and believe very strongly in the benefits of the Plant ES Natives Campaign.  We are excited about this learning opportunity and look forward to sharing our findings with you. Stay tuned to our website for updates on the various demonstration gardens throughout the Eastern Shore!
