Green thumbs will want to head down to the Living Prairie Museum this long week.
Prairie Flora is holding its annual native plant sale, offering wildflowers and grasses, with seed originated from local prairie remnants.
“We’re always impressed by the concern Manitobans show for our environment,” said owner Aimee McDonald. “This year we’re introducing rain gardens, which are designed to capture and filter contaminated rainwater run-off and reduce the toxins that reach our lakes and rivers.”
The company focuses on quality plants grown from open-pollinated seed that are resilient and adapt well to Manitoban environmental conditions. Plants are tended with all-natural and non-toxic pest management and fertilizer.
The prairie plant sale runs today from 3-6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2795 Ness Avenue.
