Do you want to have a garden that is in sync with nature? Native Plants are not only beautiful and climate adaptable but they feed and shelter birds, bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Come find a wide selection of native perennials, shrubs, and trees, grasses, vines and native annuals! There will be plants from Cornflower Farms, Hedgerow Farms and Elderberry Farms Native Plant Nursery. Plant Advisers will be available to help you find the plants you desire and that will fit your garden. Landscape Designers will also be available to give 15-minute consultations for a donation to CNPS.

Elderberry Farms is 10 years old! Celebrate all the volunteers who have made this possible! Come see what we have accomplished and what we learn about growing native plants.

All new or renewing CNPS members may choose a FREE 1-gallon Elderberry Farms plant.

The Plant Sale is a volunteer-run event and we would love to have you volunteer! Please contact Lauren at laurenbertelson [at] gmail [dot] com for more information.
