It is incredible what a plant can do in the space of 20 years. Kim Brooke has been buying plants from the Whatcom Conservation District plant sale for that long. Across her sheep farm she has planted native tree and shrub buffers along her property line, and more ornamental native plants around her property. Planting one area at a time, you can see trees and plants from the Plant Sale at varying stages of their lives. From 30 foot trees to newly planted saplings.
Kim raises sheep and chickens on a property near the Lake Terrell Wildlife Area. The high water table helps Kim’s native plants thrive, brightening her farm and helping manage her water. Native plants an provide many positive benefits to your property and the natural environment such as improved water quality, enhanced fish and wildlife habitat, reduction of wind and soil erosion, cleaner air, reduction of energy costs, and beautification of your property.
