This year the Mostly Native Plant Sale and Green Living Fair are expanding to focus on additional ways to be friendly to the environment. Expert regional growers and nurseries will be on hand to answer questions and provide an array of plants for sell that survive and thrive in the Hill Country.
Learn what plants attract birds and butterflies to your garden; gain water conservation tips and proper pruning techniques; learn about wildscape gardening, the best gardening tools to use, composting and how to attract feathery friends with bird nest boxes. Plant varieties for sell include vines, shrubs, trees, herbs, heirloom tomatoes and flowers.
Food, fun and special activities will be available for the entire family. This year’s raffle item will be an Ultra Motor Portia electric bicycle compliments of Gotta Ride Bikes of Boerne. Raffle tickets ($10 each or 5 for $40) can be purchased prior to and on the day of the event.
All vendors at the event generously donate a portion of their sales to the Cibolo Nature Center to help with educational programming.
