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.

  • At least 18 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.
  • The Wells Reserve operates in accordance with orders from the Governor of Maine and instructions from the Maine Center for Disease Control. Reserve leadership will monitor, evaluate, and adapt as needed to ensure all programs operate safely and effectively. 
  • Please have a mask on hand if you are not vaccinated and/or feel safer being masked in a group setting. 

York County Master Gardener Volunteers (UMaine Cooperative Extension) will be present to assist buyers.
