Native plant seminar to be at new St. Mary’s facility

Frank Porter, of Porterbook Farm in Pomeroy, is giving a seminar on the development and planting of a native plant garden on Monday at noon at the St. Mary’s Medical Campus in Ironton.

This free seminar is open to gardeners, individuals who landscape their home, school and government personnel responsible for maintaining the landscape, and business owners who want to develop a low-maintenance green space. Bring a sack lunch with you.

Ironton in Bloom, the Appalachian Weed Control Partnership and the ILCAO are sponsoring this event as they begin the process of developing an educational native plant landscape and walking path on the St. Mary’s Ironton Campus for spring.

This is a part of the grant IIB received from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
