Did you know: baby’s breath, oxeye daisy and blueweed are actually bad for your garden?

Join Wildsight and the East Kootenay Invasive Plant Council (EKIPC) on Thursday, June 16, 5:30-7:30pm and find out what to plant instead. Jessie Paloposki, EKIPC Education Coordinator, will facilitate an informative Q & A at the Circle Café in Invermere. Learn about the simple actions you can take in your garden to prevent the spread of invasive species and keep your garden healthy.

Grow Me Instead” is a program designed to inform gardening enthusiasts about horticulture’s most “unwanted” invasive plants in British Columbia, while providing a variety of native and exotic plant alternatives found to be noninvasive across the province. Whether you are adding new, attractive plants to your garden, starting a landscaping project, or removing invasive plants from your land, we hope this presentation will be a valuable resource.

By working together, we can ensure that future generations will enjoy the naturally beautiful landscape of BC, while nourishing sustainable communities, healthy ecosystems and vibrant gardens.
