We know the weather in Michigan can be so unpredictable but we think we might be in the clear now! It’s officially time to start planting! So, what should you plant? Never fear, DuVall is here!
Want to get a great start on your garden? Do you want to help our pollinators and environment? Do you want to help DuVall too? Well, if you answered YES to any of those questions, you’re definitely going to want to keep reading!
Native plants are a great way to support butterflies and other pollinators, something our students feel very passionate about! Attached is our Native Plant Presale order form, which also came home this week in your children’s folders. Orders submitted as part of the presale can be picked up on the Francis side of the school on Saturday, June 5 during our Native Plant Street Sale event. We will even help you get them loaded into your car with our curbside service if you prefer.
Plants are sold in quart-size pots and cost $6 each. Various specialty garden design kits are also available. All profits support the DuVall PTA and our School Butterfly Garden!
Please consider collecting orders from your family and friends as well. Submit your pre-sale order form and payment by May 26. Details are provided in the order form for contactless payment and order submission.
Please also visit our in-person Native Plant Sale Event on Saturday, June 5 on the Francis side of the school during the Edison Street Sale Event 9 am-4 pm. Plant experts from East Michigan Natives will be on-hand to advise you on the plants and provide technical expertise. Tell your family and friends too!
Thank you so much for supporting our school, our DuVall Penguins, and our Michigan pollinators!
