Blanco Verde and OBCCPS Potluck Rousing Success
Wednesday, March 31, 2010 • Posted March 30, 2010

The potluck supper on Sunday, March 28th, at the OBCC, sponsored by Blanco Verde and the Old Blanco County Courthouse Preservation Society, was a rousing success.

Justin Duke, an environmental resource specialist, spoke about several native species that are beneficial to bees, butterflies, and birds.

All the plants Justin displayed on his PowerPoint presentation were very attractive for landscape purposes as well. “My list is nowhere near comprehensive,” Justin noted, “because the list of beautiful native plants beneficial to all of us, humans included, is extensive.”

Mr. Duke showed his attentive audience how invaluable native plants can be for erosion control, aesthetics, and water conservation.

Everyone enjoyed the planting table too, taking home pots of clary sage, eggplant, habanero peppers, bell peppers, marigolds, aloe vera, Big Tooth Maple trees, and many other garden treasures donated by Arnosky Family Farm, Heron’s Nest Herb Farm, and Morning Glory Farm. The evening proved a big success.
