Incorporating native plants into urban landscapes can result in many ecological benefits for people and wildlife. Not only do native plants help manage stormwater runoff and improve air quality, they also provide food and shelter for birds and beneficial insects like native bees. Join us for this webinar with KGD farmer and native plant producer Akello Karamoko, ecologist and native bee expert Rebecca Tonietto, and rain garden and bird enthusiast Sanaa Green to learn all about how to cultivate, care for, and enjoy native landscapes that help people and the environment thrive.
To promote the establishment of native landscapes in low-income and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities across the city, KGD is able to provide 50 Detroit households or community-based organizations that attend the webinar with 15 potted native plants through a partnership with the National Wildlife Federation. If you are BIPOC or low-income, you can request free plants when you register. Please note a request does not necessarily guarantee free plants, supplies will be given on a first come first serve basis. Native plants will also be available after the webinar for sale on our Online Farm Store.
