Native Plant Sale

Saturday, June 12 | Time 930am-Noon

Rotary Park, Ludington

Help protect our species by gardening with native plants! AFFEW will offer a variety of native plants for sale in early June. These important plant species provide nectar, pollen, and seeds that serve as food for insects, birds and animals. Native plants also require minimal maintenance and their deep root system absorb more water than a traditional lawn. With the continuous decline of the Monarch butterfly population you can make a difference by creating a habitat for these beautiful and important orange butterflies!

Last year our sale introduced nearly 1000 native plants to our community!  AFFEW will partner with Birdsfoot Native Nursery and Designs By Nature to bring these amazing plants to YOU!

There will be a LARGE selection of individual quarts and gallon plants available the day of the sale and a representative from Birdsfoot Native Nursery will be there to answer any questions. Preview a list of plants that may be available the day of the sale. This list will be updated regularly as supplies change. We are excited to announce that this year we will also have a limit supply of woodland wildflowers and ferns!
