Event Description

Did you know the Dane County Land & Water Resources Department has a program that provides free native plants to schools and community groups? Since the program began, we have distributed more than 37,000 plants. Many of these plants are grown by volunteers! In an effort to reduce plastic waste and lower program costs, we try to reuse plant pots and trays each year. To do this, we rinse and sanitize the pots to reduce the risk of spreading pathogens or plant diseases. We are hosting a pot and tray washing day! Volunteers will help us scrub, sanitize and lay pots and trays out to dry. These supplies will be used for the 2024 growing program.
