Please join us for our virtual annual meeting on Saturday, Nov. 12, 9:30 to 10:30 am. We will review 2022, both its challenges and great successes, including online education programming, ticket sales, increased visitation and admissions revenue and springtime plant sales. In addition, we’ll look ahead to share our 2023 priorities, goals and annual budget. Working together we will plan and prepare for a new year, a fresh start and a new opportunity to share our native plant mission.
The meeting will begin with a short presentation by our guest speaker, Jenny Rose Carey and her top five easy flowering plants for your summer into fall native garden. A limited amount of those five species—white turtlehead (Chelone glabra), cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis), foxglove beardtongue (Penstemon digitalis), obedient plant (Physostegia virginiana) and brown-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia triloba)—will be available at the Twinleaf Book & Gift Shop from Saturday, Nov. 12, to Nov. 22 while supplies last. Be sure to get your last native plants of the season before they disappear!
