Native plants attract native insects and provide food for native birds.

At a time when development has fragmented habitats and interrupted migration corridors for native plants and animals that co-evolved over millennia, we can help create and restore beneficial environments for these essential inhabitants—and for us—in our home gardens.

  • More than 30 species of young plants grown from wild or wild-type seed.
  • Information on plant growing conditions, benefits to wildlife, and complementary species.
  • Proceeds benefit York County Master Gardener Volunteer programs and activities at the Wells Reserve at Laudholm.
  • Held rain or shine. 
  • Quantities limited.
  • COVID-19 precautions in place.

York County Master Gardener Volunteers (UMaine Cooperative Extension) will be present to assist buyers. Heather McCargo of the Wild Seed Project will also be present to discuss rewilding and to sell plants.

Please email Allan Amioka or Ginger Laurits.
