    Salish Seeds Native Plant Sale – San Juan Island

    Salish Seeds Native Plant Sale, Sept. 2018 at Red Mill Farm

    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 8 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.

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