The City of Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department is an award winning agency, striving to keep up with the rapid growth the area is experiencing. Leadership recognized a need for locally sourced native plant materials for use in parks, greenways, environmental education programs and in stream restoration projects. Accordingly the Indigenous Plants Project was created. Our guest, Kristin Hopkins, is coordinator for this effort and is involved in propagating a wide variety of native species. We talk with Kristin about her work and about the value of native plants in support of environmental health and wildlife.
