 Why are native plants important?
  1. Biodiversity: Native plants play a crucial role in supporting the local ecosystem and the diverse species that rely on them for survival, including insects, birds, and other wildlife.

  2. Sustainability: Native plants are well adapted to the local climate, soil conditions, and natural disasters, making them more resilient and sustainable than non-native species.

  3. Ecosystem services: Native plants help maintain the balance of local ecosystems by providing essential ecosystem services, such as pollination, soil stabilization, water filtration, and nutrient cycling.

  4. Climate resilience: Native plants can help mitigate the impacts of climate change by serving as carbon sinks and providing critical habitat for wildlife.

  5. Cultural and historical significance: Native plants have a deep cultural and historical significance for indigenous communities, who have relied on them for food, medicine, and cultural practices for centuries.

  6. Aesthetic value: Native plants can also provide aesthetic value and contribute to the beauty of natural landscapes.


In short, native plants are an integral part of the local ecosystem and play a vital role in maintaining its health and biodiversity.
