SANTA ANA, Calif., May 3, 2017 – Back To Natives Restoration, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit public charity, will sell locally native plants at the Orange County Spring Home & Garden Show at the Anaheim Convention Center from May 19 – May 21, 2017. Native plants help conserve water, eliminate the need for pesticides and fertilizers, and provide habitat for butterflies and birds. Plant sales will raise funds for Back to Natives’ environmental education and habitat restoration programs.

This is Back to Natives’ first year participating in the OC Spring Home Garden Show, and the first time a native plant vendor will be featured. It is a three day event produced by Home Show Consultants that annually showcases services and merchandise in relation to garden and home improvement. The show will consist of informative demonstrations, displays and seminars on the newest ideas in home improvement and remodeling.

Locally native plants provide habitat for animals and sustain biodiversity within the ecosystem – a necessity for the planet to thrive. Back to Natives will be providing information about incorporating locally native plants into a landscape design, giving homeowners the opportunity to help provide habitat in their own front or backyard.

“Our designs are unique because they features plants locally native to Orange County – no hybrids or cultivars,” said Back to Natives Director of Community Relations Lori Whalen, “(they) are what you’d see growing in our local wildlands in their original, habitat providing form.”

Back to Natives Executive Director Reginald Durant agrees that Back to Natives’ garden designs “…prove that natives can fit in anywhere”.

The Orange County Spring Home & Garden Show will be Friday 12 Noon to 7PM, Saturday 10AM to 7PM, and Sunday 10AM to 5PM.
