A Grant for Plants

Yesterday, Ken Kendall from the Family Campers and RVers presented me with a $700 check to purchase plants for a renovated butterfly garden. Ken encouraged me to apply for an FCRV grant and was instrumental in getting my request through. Thank you Ken!

We'll likely order in the spring from Bluebird Nursery in Clarkson, Nebraska; they carry a large number of the native prairie plants I'm looking for. The grant will cover the purchase of about 20 flats of 36 plants each; the math tells me that's a lot for one person to install by himself. Do I see a plant-planting party next April or May?
