    Dear Friend of Drosera:

    I'm working on a project that I need your help to finish. I've designed a native plant display garden for Union Square Park in Manhattan, to bring the beauty of native plants to one of the city's most unique and historic public spaces. We started planting in May, but now we are at a stopping point because we've run out of money.

    The goal is to raise $2500 for fall plantings, and time is running out. So please, take a look at my website, and if you can, donate a plant. The site accepts credit cards securely through PayPal, so whether you'd like to give $8 for a wildflower or fern, or you're looking to offset those flights to Rio last year, making a donation is quick and easy. Even if you can't contribute monetarily, you can still help by passing this link on to others who might be interested in donating or volunteering with the project.

    Here's the wildflower donation website

    The garden will have its official ribbon cutting ceremony during the 1st ever NYC Wildflower Week, May 4-10, 2008. I'm organizing the event for the Torrey Botanical Society. If anyone is interested in volunteering or participating in that event, please let me know!

    Thanks for your time and help,

    Marielle
