Hi! I am Kae! I started a business called The Native Yard. The business sells native plants for Northeastern America. However, by request, I can get other parts of the USA's native plants for customers that live outside that area.
The goal to my business is teach communities the importance of pollinators.
What We Need & What You Get
The Native Yard goes to Home & Garden trade shows throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland in hopes of selling native plants. At these trade shows I would like to get native plant posters that reads about each plant and the benefits that it brings.
Examples of this would be like a Milkweed Flower only feeds a certain butterfly. So without that plant, there would be no species from which feeds from that milkweed.
The information would come straight from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Database for Plants. (www.usda.gov) I would then print the sheets out with good paper and ink. There are 100s of different plants that will be needed. Then take them into a print shop and get them laminated to keep them protected. (There would be no copyright issues.) The last thing that would be needed would be a caring storage bin to keep them all together.
Customers would be able to see these posters more clearly and have a better understanding of the plant growth detail and wildlife benefits. An added benefit would be that the posters would continue to be reused for all of the trade shows The Native Yard attends.
Risks & Challenges
The only challenges that I see would be to keep them in order at all times so none of them would get missed placed.
