Popular Carbondale Gathering Spot Will Be Covered With Native Plants and Trees, on October 3rd 2020.

This Saturday the non-profit Keep Carbondale Beautiful is sponsoring a native tree and plant sale.  Marisa Szubryt holds a master's degree from the Plant Biology Department at SIU-C  and  says, native plants provide food for many  local creatures, and you don't have to have a huge acreage.

"And so a lot of the plants you put them in the ground give them a little bit of water at the start, and they can pretty much take care of themselves."

The sale will start at 9:00AM this Saturday, at the Town Square Pavilion.  Proceeds will benefit Keep Carbondale Beautiful and Green Earth.
