Special Work Day at Native Plant Garden

Posted on by SCNPS Website Team

Pickens Native Plant Garden Special Work Morning

September 11 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am

These Native Plant Garden Volunteers  NEED YOUR HELP!

 Special Saturday Work Day at Native Plant Garden in Downtown Pickens

Volunteer for a one-time rescue work day at the Native plant garden at the Pickens County Museum at 307 Johnson St, Pickens, SC 29671.  Rain cancelled recent regular work days  but the plants (including weeds) loved it and are now “out of hand”!.  This garden is a long-term project of the South Carolina Native Plant Society, Master Gardeners of the Foothills, and the Upstate Master Naturalists Association, but our little band of regular volunteers is currently overwhelmed.

Join us on Saturday, September 11, 8:30 to 11:30am, with Sept. 18 as the rain date.  Bring gloves, hat, water, shovels (narrow blade best), pruners, weeders, and lots of energy to help whip the garden back into shape. With the Covid virus re-surging, please wear a mask and keep a social distance. This  beautiful garden is worth your rescue efforts. As a bonus, there may be excess native plants for you to rescue and take home.  Contact Carol Asalon at for more information or to volunteer.
