Nurture Natives Guide

In July 2022, our team designed and published Nurture Natives: A Guide to Invasive Species and Their Native Look-Alikes in collaboration with the University of Maryland Extension Master Gardeners. Our 25-page guide explains the impacts of native versus invasive species on agriculture and biodiversity; in addition to a plant profile featuring pictures and descriptions of native alternatives to 12 popular invasive horticulture species in our region. Published by the University of Maryland, we are currently distributing hundreds of our guides to nurseries and organizations across seven East Coast states: Maryland, Washington D.C., New Jersey, Delaware, Massachusetts, Virginia, and West Virginia.
