Wood River Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society

In this talk sponsored by the Wood River Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society, Mindy Rider will discuss how native plants differ from ornamental varieties. She will outline their differing water needs and growth habits. Rider will make some recommendations about her favorite natives to use in your landscape and how to start them from seeds. Plenty of time will be set aside to answer your questions.
Mindy Rider is well qualified to educate about native plants. She has worked as a landscaper and horticulturalist for 25 years. Three years of that time was at a native plant nursery in Bend, Oregon where she grew natives and assisted homeowners with their selections. Rider currently starts, grows and installs native plants at the Hunger Coalition as part of her job as Food Production Manager.
