Calendar Next session starts Jun 15, 2019 at 10 am

Join us for our third annual retail plants sale designed to help gardeners and homeowners integrate native species in yards, gardens and even containers.  We work with state and regional vendors to source material that is naturally propagated and easily adaptable to a variety of landscape uses.  In addition to the festive atmosphere, numerous experts and resources will be on hand to help both new and experienced gardeners and growers select plants and improve their habitats.

Featuring:

  • Over 40 species of potted native wildflowers, shrubs and trees 
  • Information tables featuring partners and experts
  • Educational workshops and expert advice
  • Kids activities, food trucks, and more!

 

 

The annual Plants Sale & Festival is the signature program of Maine Audubon’s “Bringing Nature Home” community engagement and native plant restoration initiative.  The initiative is based on the best-selling book of that title by entomologist Doug Tallamy, and is funded by a gift from Jim & Ann Hancock.
