The City of Boise and partners have collaborated to create the Firewise Gardening Incentive Program which educates and encourages WUI residents to be mindful of flammable plant material surrounding their home. Participants of the program will be eligible for a free plant from either Idaho Firewise or Draggin’ Wing High Desert Nursery!
How to qualify for a free plant:
- Take a picture of the highly flammable plant in your landscape.
- Remove the plant and dispose of it in your compost bin if possible.
- Take a picture of the landscape post-removal and email both before and after photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and enter FREE PLANT in the subject line.
- You will receive an electronic coupon, plus pick-up instructions for your free plant.
- Include what plant species you are interested in… plant options are outlined in the program brochure!
