End of summer special!!!! ….and just in time for the return of a good planting rain….The GREEN Corps youth will be selling Native Plants (from Bosky Dell Nursery in West Linn ) at the market this Saturday and for the next two weekends. Fall is a great time to plant natives, less water is required and plants have time to establish themselves well over the winter before the dry season next summer! The youth will have a wide variety of native plants and varieties available at great prices! They will be taking requests for specific varieties, so if there is something you want let them know and they will bring it to the market next week!
