September Native Plant Sales from the Salish Seeds Project
Posted August 29, 2019 at 5:48 am by Tim Dustrude
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.
