Landscaping with Native Plants is the topic of this spring’s Saline County Women in Ag meeting scheduled for Tuesday, April 30. The speaker will be Jason Graves, K-State Research and Extension Horticulture Agent, Salina, KS.
Native plants are growing in interest for reasons that may surprise you. In this meeting we will explore different features of Kansas native plants and prepare you to use them in your own home landscape. Following Jason’s presentation, there will be an interactive planting session where you will plant your own succulent to take home. (Please bring a small coffee cup size container for your plant.)
If you are a woman involved in agriculture, whether producer, spouse, landlord, or are interested in learning more, plan to attend this free Women in Ag program. The session will be at American Ag Credit at 925 W. Magnolia, Salina, KS. Registration begins at 6 p.m. followed by the meeting at 6:30 p.m. Drinks and dessert will be served. Pre-registration is required to ensure enough plants are available. Call the K-State Research & Extension office in Salina, at 785-309-5850 by April 23 to register.
