About Native Plants
All plants are from local native plant nurseries and are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, and neonicotinoids. Once established in the right environment, native plants are low maintenance and normally don’t require watering, fertilizer, herbicide, fungicides, or pesticides. Native plants are beloved by those who want to do their part to make their garden a natural oasis for wildlife.

About the Library’s Commitment to Native Plants
This event is part of the Camden Public Library’s ongoing celebration of Fredrick Law Olmsted Sr. and our historic parks. Considered by many to be the father of modern day landscape architecture, Olmsted’s firm oversaw the design of Camden’s iconic Harbor Park, noted for its utilization of native plants and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Together with the Library’s Amphitheatre, designed by Fletcher Steele (and designated a National Historic Landmark in 2013), the two parks are champions of native plant and garden design. A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Camden Public Library.
