Native plants are an important and often lacking part of the built environment. Through a grant from the Virginia Outdoors Foundation the Plant Southwest Virginia Natives Campaign has been working to increase regional access to native plants. The project has continued it’s distribution efforts by providing native plants to local community projects. To date there have been almost 500 plants distributed to the following partners, the ACCE program in Giles County, Calfee Community Center and Friends of Peak in Pulaski Town and County, Floyd Center for the Arts in Floyd County, the Glencoe Museum in the City of Radford, Kiwanis Park and Depot Park in the Town of Christiansburg, and Hale Community Garden in the Town of Blacksburg. Plant SWVA is looking for additional partners in the region. Please fill out this survey to tell us about your project and its native plant needs.
