Welcome to Grow Native!

The Grow Native! program provides resources to help gardeners, farm owners, land care professionals, and planners use native plants in the built environment and altered landscapes in the lower Midwest for multiple benefits. Grow Native! also administers the Missouri Invasive Plant Task Force (MoIP), a multi-organizational and multi-agency group with the goal of bringing greater statewide attention on early detection and control of invasive plants.

The Grow Native! program is operated by the Missouri Prairie Foundation, a nonprofit conservation organization. Become a member of the Missouri Prairie Foundation, make a donation to our prairie conservation efforts, and/or donate to the Grow Native! program.
