September Native Plant Sales from the Salish Seeds Project

Posted August 29, 2019 at 5:48 am by

Don’t miss this rare oppor­tu­ni­ty to pur­chase local­ly grown wild­flow­ers native to San Juan Coun­ty! The Land Bank is host­ing three sales in Sep­tem­ber fea­tur­ing native plants pro­duced by the Sal­ish Seeds Project. Nurs­ery gates will open to the pub­lic Sep­tem­ber 8th on San Juan Island, with pop-up sales Sept. 21 on Lopez and Sept. 28 on Orcas. 

Many of the plants offered are hard to obtain com­mer­cial­ly and are uncom­mon even in the wild. Most are showy, great for native pol­li­na­tors, and drought-tol­er­ant. Sale offer­ings will include harsh Indi­an paint­brush, camas bulbs, Cana­da gold­en­rod, Henderson’s check­er­mal­low, and many more.

Vis­it the Land Bank’s web­site for a com­plete list of species, descrip­tions, and prices. Plant prices off­set pro­duc­tion costs and do not gen­er­ate a prof­it. Quan­ti­ties are lim­it­ed so on-time arrival is rec­om­mend­ed for the best selection. 

Native Plant Sales Dates:

  • San Juan Island — Sun­day, Sept. 8, 12 – 2 pm, Red Mill Farm, 290 Val­ley Farms Rd.
  • Lopez Island — Sat­ur­day, Sept. 21, 12 – 2 pm, Sun­set Hardware
  • Orcas Island — Sat­ur­day, Sept. 28, 12 – 2 pm, Cof­felt Farm

The Sal­ish Seeds Project is ded­i­cat­ed to restor­ing native wild­flow­ers and grass­es in the San Juan Islands. Plants and seeds are pro­duced at a nurs­ery locat­ed at Red Mill Farm in San Juan Val­ley. In a fruit­ful part­ner­ship, The San Juan Preser­va­tion Trust owns the prop­er­ty and the Land Bank runs the nursery.
