The City of Geneva Green Committee, in collaboration with the Town of Geneva Sustainability Committee and the Geneva High School Green Club, will hold a Native Plant Sale on Saturday, May 18, at the Finger Lakes Welcome Center.

The event, which runs from 9 am to 1 pm, will feature native perennials, shrubs, and trees, offering attendees an opportunity to consult with nurseries about creating native plant gardens.


The sale is part of a broader initiative to educate the public on the Lake Friendly Living campaign and to encourage community involvement in maintaining city gardens along the lakefront. Experts at the event will share the environmental benefits of native plants, highlighting their role in supporting local pollinators and birds, enhancing soil health, and reducing erosion and water runoff due to their deep root systems.

Attendees will also learn about the low maintenance needs of native gardens, which are adapted to local conditions and require minimal care once established.
