PARTNERS FOR PLANTS
Partners for Plants
Partners for Plants is a joint program of the Garden Club of America’s conservation and horticulture committees to monitor and conserve rare plants, restore native habitats, and remove invasive weeds on federal, state, and local public lands. Partners for Plants (P4P) volunteers have partnered with land agencies to conserve a variety of natural open spaces throughout the United States. Since the program’s beginning in 1992, there have been more than 470 projects nationwide.
Each Partners for Plants project is unique to the group undertaking the task. Marin Garden Club’s most recent project has been a multi-year effort to remove French broom and other invasive plants from Old St. Hilary’s Open Space Preserve in Tiburon and to revegetate the preserve with native wildflowers and grasses. Guided by Marin County Parks rangers and ecologists, club members participate in workdays with other local volunteers.
