July 2021 Monthly Meeting

Katy Ross, co-owner/operator of Night Song Native Plant Nursery presented Natives in the Landscape: Using native plants to promote biodiversity in urban and suburban landscapes at our July 19th zoom meeting.  Katy has many years working in the plant and nursery industry and showcased many plant ideas for our gardens. 

Katy first became interested in native plants out of high school and always promoted them as a hardier, better alternative to non-natives while working in the nursery industry. She is also a Georgia Certified Plant Professional. She and her husband are working to build a more sustainable native plant nursery and educate the public about the importance native plants play in the environment.
