Volunteer Planting

We will be planting 2 trays (32 plugs) of native milkweed plants, plus nectar plants and succulents from 9AM-12PM at Sterling Hills Golf Course, near the bar and grill in an easy-to-plant flowerbed. The area will be prepped before planting, and each volunteer will plant a few plugs and other plants.

If you are only picking up native Milkweed giveaway plants this day, this is an opportunity to understand the planting process, and obtain more information on ensuring the success of your Milkweed plants for years to come and increasing Monarch habitats in our area.

Milkweed Giveaway

Our mission is to increase Monarch Butterfly breeding habitat using native milkweed plants to fit our ecoregion. We will be giving away a sizeable amount of Narrowleaf Milkweed (Asclepias fascicularis) plugs, which is an easier-to-grow California native milkweed that plays a critical role in supporting its lifecycle while offering benefits to other pollinators like bees and hummingbirds.

Download and read through the following planting guide to ensure you are able to meet the needs of these plants for their continued growth and existence, then apply below and we will reach out to you with pickup details and schedule.
