Don’t feel left out, Wisconsin. We haven’t forgotten about you.
The now-Northern Native Plant Sale and Garden Event, an event for flower gardeners the past decade, this year includes speakers, vendors and activities for kids.
The 11th annual sale is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute on the campus of Northland College in Ashland.
Topics to be discussed include northern native plants, of course, fruit and vegetable plants, massage therapy and herbs. The Fish Creek Partnership is in charge of kids’ activities such as folding Curious George-style boats out of newspapers (after the paper has been read cover to cover, we hope) and planting flowers to take home.
