**NEW** Planting Guidelines
Check out these planting guidelines to help give you guidance on best practices before, during, and after you plant your native plants.
Photo Release Form
Unity Gardens uses photos of our grant projects to inform and educate about our work, and the value of native plants. Photos may be used on Unity Gardens’ social media pages, our website, and in print. By submitting photos to Unity Gardens, you are certifying that all persons depicted in the photos you share with us have signed a Photo Release Form.
Local Sources for Native Plants
Finding the exact native plant you want can be challenging. The good news is there are mores sources than ever to find natives. Here’s a recent list we put together.
Each grant project will receive a metal 12 x 16 in Unity Gardens sign for their project at no charge. The sign will have holes so you can screw it to a fence, building, or you can use the post provided. If you notify us of your planting days, we’ll aim to deliver to sign on a garden work day.
