Native Garden Club


Welcome To Onaway and Lomond's Native Garden Club site! We are coming off a very successful year with two new beds planted - one at Onaway and one at Lomond. We are also proud to have donated 70 plants which earned close to $1000 for the Nature Center Plant Sale. Hopefully you will find helpful and interesting information on our site. Included are important dates, educational information, and updates to our club activities. Just click on the Resources button in the upper right hand corner to access pages with books, links, and references for garden club as well as your own home landscaping needs! Our Garden Club mission is to support native wildlife with native plantings. The students learn through guided inquiry about our local ecosystem and ‘adopt’ native birds and butterflies to support with flowers, shrubs, vines, and trees endemic to our region. We then investigate the needs of those plants in order to prepare for spring plantings. Our club undergoes a ten class cycle that culminates in a handful of planting dates in April and May. Our goal is to have students take an active role in growing plants and designing habitat native to our region, and create partnerships within the community to educate others on the need for preservation.
