How to Participate in the Plant Sale

Are you interested in supporting the native plants in our community? Consider preordering from our plant sale today! Our plants come from Great Basin Nursery, a locally-sourced nursery dedicated to restore and enhance habitats for both people and the animals that depend upon them.

Below are the steps to expect when you make a purchase:

  1. Click on the 1 gallon forbs and/or 2 gallon shurbs accordions located below this to read about the different species we have available. 
  2. Decide which forbs and/or shrubs will suit your needs.
  3. Select the forb or shrub you would like to purchase. You may purchase up to 10 of one kind.
    1. If you want to purchase more than one plant variety, unfortunately, you will need to make several orders. We understand the inconvenience and are working to get this updated. We appreciate your understanding through this process. 
  4. Follow the steps to pay!

Note: this is a preorder. Your purchases will be ready for pickup in early spring. We will send you detailed instructions for the next steps once your plants are mature enough for pickup.
