Native Plant Sale

Saturday, June 13 * 9:30 am-12 pm

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. They also require minimal maintenance and the deep root system of native plants absorb more water than a traditional lawn.  AFFEW will partner with Birdsfoot Native Nursery to bring these amazing plants to YOU!

2020 Preorders will be accepted through June 5. This year ONLY garden and signal species flats can be preordered. There will be a LARGE selection of individual quarts available the day of the sale and a representative from Birdsfoot Native Nursery will be there to answer any questions. Check or Credit Card will be accepted for preorders.

AFFEW Members who order Garden or Single Species Flats will receive a 15% Discount on their preorder PLUS admission to the 9 am presale AND an additional 15% discount on all quarts purchased at the presale!

On the day of the sale a variety of safety procedures will be observed to assure the safety of volunteers and attendees. The day will be split between preorders and those purchasing that day. All volunteers will wear face masks while working the event. Hand sanitizer will be available for volunteers and the public. Individuals attending the event are strongly encouraged to wear a face mask for their safety and that of others. Social distancing will be required throughout the event. Thank you for your understanding and support of these necessary safety procedures.

AFFEW is pleased to have Sarah Pregitzer with the Newaygo Invasive Plant Project present on native garden transformation.

Many stewards long to transform their personal landscapes with pollinator gardens, rain gardens, and meadow areas to replace traditional landscapes. Most can’t afford to hire a professional. In this hands-on workshop, we will explore methods of propagating and planting natives that are cheap, easy and highly successful . We will learn about native seed collection and storage, site preparation, winter sowing and making seedballs. All of these techniques can be adapted to schools or church groups that want to make a difference on their own land .

Participants will receive information and materials to begin their own native garden transformation. Registration deadline has been extended to October 16! Maximum number of participants is 24. Please fill out the form below and bring payment the day of the event.

Consider becoming a member of AFFEW and receive a discount on this program and support future events and causes.
