The chapter will also have an information booth where customers can find out more about Virginia's native plants, their wildlife benefits, and how native plants can be incorporated into the landscape.
The sale is the main fundraiser for the John Clayton Chapter and the proceeds help with native plant conservational and educational activities of the chapter, including sponsoring students to Nature Camp in the George Washington National Forest.
