Your March opportunity to get a voucher for two free native trees or shrubs is almost here.
The Native Canopy Education Program is offering Palm Beach County residents another opportunity for an online voucher for two free native trees or shrubs in three-gallon containers.
If you missed earlier online voucher distributions, or hadn’t heard about them, here’s your chance to get a voucher. You’ll be able to choose any two plants from a list of 23 different native species, subject to availability. Vouchers can be redeemed at any of five participating nurseries.
The link to the application form will be live on Saturday, March 6 from 12 noon until supplies are exhausted.
Palm Beach County residents can go to: https://discover.pbcgov.org/coextension/horticulture/Pages/Native-Canopy.aspx or search for “PBC Cooperative Extension Horticulture” and click on the “Native Canopy Program” tab. You will then watch the short educational video and complete the application form. A voucher and supporting materials will be e-mailed to qualified applicants.
To qualify for a voucher, you must be a Palm Beach County resident whose household has not received a voucher from the group within the past 12 months.
