Guests are given up to ten seeds to plant in our peat pots located at the New Canal Lighthouse’s potting benches.The museum docents explain the importance of our bee, butterfly and dragonfly loving plants and our water loving native plants. Guests can place the planted seeds into our greenhouse. As the plants grow, guests will be encouraged to re-pot the plants into larger pots and can eventually plant the seedlings in our native plant educational bioswale. Cypress saplings will be brought to our tree nursery and eventually be used to replenish our coastal marshes.
Made possible by a grant from The Garden Study Club of New Orleans.
