ROCK HILL, SC – The Native Plant Societies of North and South Carolina and the Museum of York County will offer a Spring Native Plant sale 10 a.m.-1 p.m. April 4 at the museum, 4621 Mount Gallant Road in Rock Hill. A Piedmont Landscape and Nature Training workshop will be 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Create a healthy habitat in your backyard with plants native to the Carolina Piedmont. Native plants are well-adapted to our climate, often thriving with less maintenance and water than many non-native species.

Society members will be on hand to help with selection and gardening questions. Admission to the sale is free. Checks and cash accepted.
At the Piedmont Landscape and Naturescape Training (P.L.A.N.T.) workshop, participants will learn about composting, soil stewardship, toxicity reduction, Piedmont naturescaping and native plants at this workshop on organic yard care. Participants will receive a P.L.A.N.T. book and a hands-on learning experience. Dress comfortably, bring a bag lunch and plenty to drink.
