Butterfly Milkweed garden planting

Prairie garden kits will be available this fall to Kansas teachers in a pilot project of the Kansas Native Plant Society. July 1 is the deadline for Plant-A-Prairie applications; plants will be delivered to the classroom in mid-September.

The Plant-A-Prairie garden includes 32 live native plants (8-10 species)—enough for an 8’ x 12’ classroom garden. The kits feature easy-to-grow native plants that are hand-selected by the nursery for local growing conditions. Each kit is loaded with spring/fall blooming plants that support bees, butterflies and birds. 

Kansas teachers, K-12 and leaders of youth organizations are eligible to apply. The number of available kits is limited. Click on the links below for more information.
