The Chattanooga Native Plant & Wildflower Group is hosting the first annual native plant symposium “Chattanooga’s Native Beauty: Gardening with Native Plants” on Saturday, March 10, from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Chattanooga State Community College Humanities Theatre.
Organizers said, "This event is designed for local gardeners and anyone interested in “doing the right thing” in their garden. You don’t need to be an expert gardener to attend. In fact, the symposium was created with both casual and experienced gardeners in mind. You will learn about the many benefits of including native plants in your landscape, and you can find out how to attract butterflies and other desirable wildlife to your garden."
The program is sponsored by the Chattanooga Association of Landscape Professionals and the Master Gardeners of Hamilton.
Registration is $40 before March 1, and $45 after.
