Thanks for a Wonderful Annual Native Plant Sale!

Helpful VolunteersThe plant sale was another great success due to wonderful community support. We couldn’t handle the volume of customers and plants without the help of all our dedicated volunteers. We missed our long-time super volunteer Keith Chadd this year, seen here at the 2017 plant sale, but other folks stepped up and we managed one of our biggest sales to date.

Several vendors and over 33,000 plants, 700 customers, 25 volunteers, and 20 staff came together to make this event successful in providing low-cost environmentally-friendly plants to our residents.
 
Our sales of 33,837 native plants represents a 20% increase over last year and our 781 customers is a 55% increase! Our efforts to reach a broader audience and be more inclusive are really paying off.

Thanks for supporting our mission to make Pierce County (and neighboring counties’) lands greener and healthier. Please share photos and stories of your plantings on our Facebook page or Instagram!

If you missed our sale this time, please keep an eye out this fall for the opening of 2020 Native Plant Sale pre-ordering, or email info@piercenativeplantsale.com to sign up for our mailing list.
