excerpt from above:
Quote:
The use of native plants in landscaping and restoration activities on Long Island is being increasingly encouraged by local government, environmental organizations and scientists, as the impact of invasive species and development on biodiversity are understood. In response, there is an increasing demand for such plant material by the public. Unfortunately, such sales have been stifled due to a lack of the initial source of plant material needed to create commercially available native plants.

The Long Island Native Grass Initiative, (LINGI) is a cooperative effort of over 30 non-profit organizations, governmental agencies, and nursery professionals whose mission is to bridge the gap between supply and demand by providing and producing the initial source of plant material that is native to Long Island for use by seed producers, nursery growers, and in habitat restorations.
