Through this online marketplace we hope to serve the Skaneateles community by providing fresh and delicious locally grown food to families in a safe manner.  

 

You will also find an inventory of native plants.  If you live in the Skaneateles watershed, planting these to replace non-native plants, lawn, attract birds and butterfles, or to protect your stream and shoreline is one of the ways we can help bring back the health of Skaneateles Lake and our drinking water!  

 

This site is set up so that other growers/producers can list their inventory as well.  As we build this marketplace you might begin to see other producers listed, and products made with locally grown foods, such as jams, breads, butter, yogurt, cheeses.  Your purchasing power will help us grow and provide an abundant source of food and plants for you.

Go Native! perennials LLC cultivates and expands the supply and use of native perennial landscaping plants to support buffering Skaneateles Lake from harmful pollutants (and subsequent harmful algal blooms).   Plants that are native in this region are adapted to our climate, soil conditions and require far less water.  Perennials will send their roots deep and support water infiltration into the ground.  Native plants provide nectar, pollen and seeds as food for native butterflies, insects, birds and other animals – something non-native plants generally cannot do.  We are building a network of landscapers and restoration ecologists who know how to restore your land so that it protects Skaneateles Lake and are happy to help you connect with them.  Co-owners : Mary Menapace 315-727-9405 and Janice Wiles 240-626 5209 email:  gonativeskan@gmail.com
