"Interested in or looking for more native plants for your landscape?" asked Chris McHugh, Production Manager, Long Island Native Plant Initiative. "Save the dates for the Long Island Native Plant Initiative (LINPI) Annual Plant Sale and Fundraiser taking place June 3rd and 4th and June 10th and 11th."

During back-to-back weekends, horticulturists and amateur gardeners can learn about and pick up locally grown wildflowers, cactus, grasses, trees, and shrubs. "The Plant Sale will be held at the Greenhouse at Suffolk Community College, Eastern Campus, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine," McHugh added. "Find over 40 species of authentic, ecotypic, and native Long Island plants grown from seed." From grass-leaved goldentop, to false indigo to purple top grass to buttonbush, shoppers will have no trouble finding the right varieties to beautify their summer oasis.

Along with the plant sale, LINPI hosts workshops where they teach how to take care of native seeds and how to propagate native plants. Students can also expand their knowledge about identifying species by seed, germinating seed, and caring for plantlets.

The Long Island Native Plant Initiative is an all-volunteer cooperative effort that encompasses more than 30 non-profit organizations, governmental agencies, nursery professionals, and community members. The organization's mission is "to protect the genetic integrity and heritage of Long Island native plant populations and thus biodiversity from a landscape to genetic level, by establishing commercial sources of genetically appropriate local (ecotypic) plant materials for use in nursery, landscaping, and habitat restoration activities."

Suffolk Community College, Eastern Campus, is located at 121 Speonk-Riverhead Road in Riverhead. For more information, visit www.linpi.org.
