We find it counter productive that we have hundreds of Nurseries in South Florida and yet we only have a handful of places to get Native Plants as a community we can be doing a lot better job. The availability just isn't there. So a big part of the work is to create the Demand and educate Floridians on the great Importance and beauty of Native Species.
Invasive plants and animals have become a threat World wide and re-introducing Native species is a Truth that is applicable across the Globe.
If we in South Florida honesty expect to continue living here then we must spearhead a wave of Native Plant awareness but more so practice! Let us employ the right trees for Remediation and flood control, Let us combat run away pest by bringing back Bio-Diversity, Let us feed the birds and pollinators and employ them to spread the Native seed and provide habitat once more!
Below you will find many helpful links and resources regarding Native plants also a list of a few Nurseries that have plants available for sale, and you can always contact us here at LTEM and together we can work towards Environmental solutions.
