MATTHEWS – The Matthews Appearance and Tree Advisory Committee has organized a milkweed sale to help support the dwindling monarch population.
The sale features butterfly weed, a type of milkweed that is a host plant for the monarchs.
The sale takes place from 9 a.m. to noon, or until sold out, May 14 in the Matthews United Methodist Church parking lot. Plants cost $5 each (cash only) with a limit of 10 per person (Matthews residents only).
This will be a drive-through event. Volunteers from the committee will take orders and cash, as well as load cars.
Plants were sold out within an hour at last year’s event.
