All ages are welcome to come get their hands dirty or just make a visit during this relaxed, informal event focused on getting plants in the ground. This beautiful new educational garden will have six themed beds of medicinal plants (including beds of Echinacea and milkweed species), about 90 species total.

Also at the garden site:
* the thriving medicinal plants in the research area planted last year;
* the KU Student Farm, now in its first year as a true community garden;
* our new shade structure, designed by KU engineering grad student Neil Steiner and built with reclaimed materials from the Westar Green Team;
* our solar composting latrine (construction underway) designed and built by the KU student group Engineers Without Borders.

We will provide water and herbal teas. Bring hats, gloves, garden trowels if you have them -- and your smile. For more info, contact Kirsten Bosnak, nativeplants@ku.edu or 785-864-6267. Find this event at www.facebook.com/nativeplants
