The 2023 Native Plant Sale distributed 67,730 native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers in 1,100 orders to over 1,000 customers. Thanks to our staff, volunteers, and customers for making this year’s sale such a great success. There are always some snafus, but we are thrilled with how things went this year. We’ve got some additional improvements we’re hoping to implement next year. More to come!
These plants will help with large-scale restoration projects taken on by cities and private stewards and also disperse important pollinator-friendly plants throughout yards and gardens in the region. Native plants are beautiful, affordable, and hearty. They’re adapted to our region and provide a host of benefits to our native wildlife that are, in turn, adapted to these native plants.
Special thanks to our Washington Conservation Corp Crews for their awesome packing jobs and to the Tukwila Community Center for being such a great host.
Thank you to everyone who chose native plants this year. We hope to see you again in 2024!
