Speakers: Rochelle Bartolomei and Becky Melzer

Description
: Rochelle and Becky will discuss the natural plant communities in which they find milkweeds, how to mimic that for success in home gardens, and how to propagate milkweeds on your own.

Rochelle Bartolomei is the Native Plant Program Manager for Montgomery County Parks.  Becky Melzer is the Assistant Plant Program Manager.  Together they responsibly collect local ecotype native seed from county parkland and propagate plants to return to the Parks for use in Nature Center Gardens, Stormwater Management facilities, restoration projects with Weed Warriors, Brookside Gardens, and as donations to various projects.  Since its inception in 2013, the program has sent out 81,000 plants to be used in these projects.
