FORT MYERS, Fla. - Frustrated that your plants, trees and vines aren't thriving in your yard? Here's your chance to find out how to create a thriving yard (that requires little or now watering) full of butterflies and other wildlife.
All you have to do is come to a huge plant sale at Manatee Park in east Fort Myers on Saturday, October 20th.
It's from 9am to 2pm. The park is at 10901 Palm Beach Boulevard (That's one mile east of I-75 and across the street from the power plant.)
You can also learn how to plant things that will attract butterflies and wildlife as well as how to make a rain barrel. (Reservations are required for that workshop. Just call: (239) 533-4327.)
There will be face painting for the kids and fresh local honey for those with a sweet tooth.
The event is sponsored by Coccoloba chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society, All Native Nursery, Deep South Native Nurseries, Picayune Strand, and the Sanibel Captiva Conversation Foundation.
