Why Native Plants?

We get that question a lot! Native plants help support our local native ecosystem. Native plants have evolved over time to grow well in our local soil, no amending, no fertilizing. Native plants; once established need virtually NO water. Native plants are essential to native birds and wildlife which rely on them for survival!

We Need Help Maintaining our Gardens!

We are always looking for volunteers to help with maintaining our school gardens. For more information, please contact PTA Campus Chair, Cami Abel at cami.abel@holmespta.org
