You have found the Wild Ones Greater Baltimore Chapter, where you can enhance your native plant education in the Baltimore region. We would love to connect with you and bring you in to our community of passionate native plant gardeners, who seek to help the greater regional ecosystem by starting in their own yards. We welcome people of all levels of expertise to join our group and help share knowledge with others. Our events include educational presentations, garden tours, plant & and seed swaps. Help us grow by volunteering or running a committee in an area that reflects your skills and passion. Connect with us on Facebook or send us a note.
