The Community Watershed Stewardship Program has awarded Trillium Charter School a Native Plant mini grant. The mini grant provided Trillium a gift certificate to Bosky Dell Natives. With this support volunteers will plant a border of native plants around the rooftop garden, providing habitat for native pollinators – a key part of overall watershed health.
What: Rooftop garden open house and volunteer day
When: Saturday, May 21, 2016, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Before this planting event, Trillium Charter School is also hosting an educational workshop with the East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District:
Explore the benefits of gardening with Native plants! We will introduce you to common native plant communities in Portland, show examples of species that do well in similar growing conditions, share successful planting tips that will help them thrive and more! It will be held at Trillium Charter School, 5420 N Interstate Ave. on Wednesday, May 18, 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Sign up here.
