Brandywine Conservancy restores native flora to campus - Daily Local News
excerpt from above:
Quote:
CHADDS FORD — For three days last week, dozens of employees from the Brandywine Conservancy and Museum planted native grasses and flowers throughout the Chadds Ford campus — and not just to make the place look spiffy.

“The idea to plant native plants on one of the Brandywine Conservancy lawns was suggested by staff member Matt Smith,” said public relations director Lora Englehart.

After weeks of preparation, three plots were selected to be planted with native grasses and wildflowers that are more tolerant of drought or, in some cases, more tolerant of flooding...

I would love to join in. I have a very old car and don't trust it to drive very far. I think northern PA is still pretty far from me. Dap mentioned maybe I could catch a ride with someone who may be going near me on the way. I am in northeastern Maryland. So if anyone is going near me on their way or if you know of anyone Equil please let me know. Thanks! Yes I'm right there with you when it comes to depends! Ha ha!

Just last week, we were in Gettysburg for a meeting, and I stopped at Brandywine (we only had about 10 minutes to spare) just to stop for some native seed packets. Had I known about the campus--and had the time, I'd have checked it out.

If I recall, it was a 3 1/2 hour drive from here to Gettysburg.

I'm glad to hear (from another thread) that Ellenwright is planning on coming in October.
