Native Plant Sale
Come purchase native plants to attract pollinators to your garden!
- General Admission: Free
This event is handicap accessible
We’ll be offering young plants grown from seed ethically collected from wild plants sourced from Wild Seed Project or from native species grown in home gardens. At a time when development has fragmented habitats and interrupted migration corridors for the native plants and animals that co-evolved over millennia, we can help restore more beneficial environments for these essential inhabitants and for us in our home gardens. The native plants will attract native insects and will provide food for our native birds.
Purchased plants will include an information sheet with details on growing conditions, benefit to wildlife, and plants that will complement each other in your garden. At least nine species of easy-to-grow plants will be offered and come with a guarantee of interesting insect visitors. The birds, bees, butterflies, moths and fans of delightfully diverse and rich ecosystems will thank you.
The Native Plant Sale will be held rain or shine. Quantities limited.
