Native Plant Sale and Gardening Workshop
Are these desert marigolds? Photo from the PSS flyer
Gallup's Plateau Sciences Society (PSS) is holding their annual native and xeric plant sale on Saturday, May 15 at Holiday Nursery, 9-6 p.m. While I like to joke that the only plants I care for are the edible variety, native plants provide many reasons to value and grow them: they're adapted to our climate; take little maintenance once established; consume little water; attract beneficial insects to the garden; best of all, they're absolutely beautiful! Stop by and support this great event.
The PSS is also hosting a workshop by master gardener, Sid Gillson, called The Garden of Eating in Gallup on Friday, May 14. It will be held 1-6 p.m. at the PSS's usual meeting place at the Red Mesa Center, 105 w. Hill.
