Marshall Native Gardens to host inaugural Native Plant Festival

MARSHALL – Each spring, a selection of organizations all over Madison County host plant sales to assistance increase cash for their respective shops. 

This year, not only did a single nearby group decide to maintain a plant sale in the drop, but the team will host a competition aimed at educating area citizens on the positive aspects of the county’s indigenous plants.

Marshall Indigenous Gardens will host its inaugural Slide Native Plant Competition Oct. 1 at the Madison County General public Library’s Marshall spot. The gardens are found on the 4.2-acre grounds of the library and are open to the community totally free of cost. Started in 2011, the native back garden was envisioned, developed, built, and is managed by Marshall Native Gardens Initiative in cooperation with the county and Madison County Library Director Kim Bellofatto.
