No pre-registration required- simply visit the Cuplet Fern Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society Facebook or YouTube page at the date and time. If you are unable to tune in, the video will be available in our library within 24 hours. It is visible to all. The simulcast will also be available through the Florida Native Gardening group.
Please join Gia Leigh Ekdahl, Director-At-Large for Cuplet Fern and creator of the Florida Native Gardening group, as she sits down for a table talk with Sean Patton, owner of Stocking Savvy, an environmental consulting company, on aquatic butterfly gardens!
Stocking Savvy was founded in 2018 and is a small environmental consulting business providing services to Central Florida. The company uses biological systems, native plant species, harvesting, and a coalition of green businesses to restore habitat across Florida. Sean has a degree from New College of Florida in Marine Biology and is the Co-Coordinator of the EcoFlora Project, hosted by Selby Gardens – Marie Selby Botanical Gardens which documents the diversity and distribution of plants in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. Gia and Sean share a common cause- habitat restoration anywhere and everywhere. Native aquatic plants filter and help regulate the flow of water- arguably, our most precious resource. Additionally, they serve as pollinator plants for some beautiful butterflies. Tune-in for this trifecta casual chat on pollinators, native plants, and water conservation!
Gia and Sean will be happy to take some of your questions and comments live
