Saturday, August 18th 2018 3:00 PM — 5:00 PM
Come hear Altair members describe the Native Plants and the so-called "Invasive Species" they found on the Altair EcoVillage site in Kimberton. We will discuss why Native Plants are so important for our well-being and introduce professor Doug Tallamy's work in the field.
"Chances are, you have never thought of your garden — indeed, of all of the space on your property — as a wildlife preserve that represents the last chance we have for sustaining plants and animals that were once common throughout the U.S. But that is exactly the role our suburban landscapes are now playing and will play even more in the near future." -Bringing Nature Home
We will gather at 3:00 pm. Please RSVP if you would like to see Altair's site – we are offering a tour around 2:30 pm. Park at the Kimberton Arts Building at Kimberton and Prizer Roads and walk up the hill six houses across the street.
Bring a potluck dish or pizza toppings to share for a dinner at Kimberton Community Supported Agriculture on Seven Stars Road (across from the Waldorf School) around 5:30 pm. We'll be joining the Phoenixville Area Time Bank and the members of the CSA - there will be music, a pizza oven, fun and games. We'll carpool.
