Janet Pawlukiewicz is the Go Native, Grow Native campaign director.

Former public administrator Janet Pawlukiewicz will  show photos that highlight the beauty of the area’s native plants and outline actions to help residents use them in their gardens. 

“Native plants are hardy, need little water, fertilizers or pesticides and they provide many benefits to wildlife,” said Pawlukiewicz who is directing the campaign. “We are creating a detailed guide to the native plants of the Northern Neck and will assist the local garden centers that are increasing their stock of native plants in 2013.” 

“Improvements will be made to the existing native demonstration gardens in our area. We also hope to establish a web site to provide educational materials and up-to-date information on activities, “ said Northern Neck Chapter education co-chairman Carol Hammer. “Attendees will have an opportunity to give feedback on the plans and sign up to help.”

The meeting will start at noon at the Wicomico Parish Church (Episcopal) Hall in Wicomico Church. Bring a brown bag lunch; tea/coffee and light refreshments will be available. Visitors are welcome.
