Lake Hopatcong Foundation To Hold Annual Plant Sale
Landing, N.J. (April 26, 2022) – The Lake Hopatcong Foundation will hold its sixth annual native plant sale online from April 28 to May 5.
Customers will be able to purchase New Jersey native plants that are not only attractive, but also beneficial to the environment. “By choosing native plants for your yard, you're making choices that are good for the health of Lake Hopatcong and its watershed,” said Lake Hopatcong Foundation Communications Director Holly Odgers.
“And, of course, they're beautiful as well!” Native plants require fewer resources and less maintenance once established, while promoting a healthy ecosystem. They also improve water quality by increasing rainwater infiltration and filtering pollution.
Visit LHFplantsale.givesmart.com April 28 to May 5 to browse more than 45 varieties of plants, all native to the Garden State. The sale will include favorites like milkweed, phlox, and sunflowers, as well as some lesser-known varieties, including black cohosh, boneset, and horsemint.
Pickup for online purchases, as well as an in-person sale for any remaining plants, will take place Saturday, May 7, 9 a.m. to noon, at the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Environmental & Cultural Center, 125 Landing Road, Landing.
The Lake Hopatcong Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to protecting the lake environment and enhancing the lake experience by bringing together public and private resources to encourage a culture of sustainability and stewardship on and around New Jersey’s largest lake, for this and future generations.
