Native Plants for Gardens

Posted Jul 06, 2020

The next Chapter meeting is Tuesday, July 21 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. A talk will be given by the owners of Plants for the People: Molly McCormick & Jeff Bowler.

What would it take for Flagstaff to become a refuge for migrating hummingbirds, butterflies, song birds & native bees? Can our collective gardens supply the food & nesting sites these species need as native habitats endure climate change?

We would like to find out and work towards making Flagstaff the ultimate destination for tiny wildlife. To meet this goal, Molly & Jeff started Plants for the People, a small business that provides hard to find native seeds, seedlings, and shrubs for all of the greater Flagstaff area’s residents.

In this talk they’ll share information about their favorite native plants for gardens and how ecologically-based landscape design can support low-maintenance beautiful habitats.

Molly is an ecologist, Permaculture designer, and herbalist. Jeff is a musician, farmer, and landscape designer. Flagstaff has been their refuge for 20 years.

Hope you can join us! To receive the Zoom meeting details, please email Sue Holiday.
