This two-day hands-on experience teaches participants to design and build a bamboo fence panel using traditional Japanese materials and techniques with staff gardeners.

Marion Soil and Water Conservation District Plant Sale
Saturday, March 9, 2019 • 9:00am-4:00pm
Bauman's Farm & Garden, Gervais, OR

Our native plant sale is a fundraiser that supports the Stan Vistica Memorial Scholarship. Profits from the native plant sale help fund scholarships for two students from Marion County studying Natural Resources or Agriculture at an Oregon College or University. The scholarship was established in 2006 and is named after an outstanding friend, conservationist, and former Board Member, Stan Vistica.

Using native plants in your landscape helps support and enhance local environments and habitat for wildlife, birds and pollinators. Native plants are a great benefit to any landscape because they require minimal or no water once they are established and rarely require additional fertilizers or pesticides. 12989 Howell Prairie Rd, Gervais, OR.
