NEWPORT — It’s time to get your orders in for the Orleans County Conservation District Annual Plant Sale.
The group offers a variety of bare-root plants, including fruit trees, berry bushes, native trees, and shrubs.
This year they will be offering a selection of native trees and shrubs known for enhancing pollinator habitat.
Planting on your property with these native plants can provide many benefits including tasty snacks for you and beauty to your land while protecting, enhancing or providing habitat to native pollinators.
They will also have bee nesting blocks and rain barrels for sale.
Bee blocks are being made by North Country Career Center (NCCC) Agricultural Sciences Department students and all proceeds go to Orleans County Future Farmers of America.
You can use barrels to collect and store rainwater from your roof to reduce flow volume and pollution to storm drains and surface waters.
