Native Plant Sale for the Pollinators! – Fall 2023

With five native plant growers there will be plenty of native plants for everyone and for every growing condition! Those growers include Klamath Siskiyou Native Seeds, Cornucopia Acres, Klamath Native Plant Nursery, and White Oak Farm, plus Pollinator Project Rogue Valley! See below for descriptions of each of the vendors.

The preliminary lists of plants (subject to change) available from each of the vendors will be posted by Sept. 23. Please review these lists, research, and identify those plants that best fit your landscaping needs, and pre-select the ones you wish to purchase.

Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds (KSNS) provides native seeds and plants from locally collected native plant seeds within the Klamath-Siskiyou region of northwest California and southwest Oregon. Offering a wide variety of species from various habitat types throughout the region, KSNS helps you increase native plants and pollinators on your land and in your garden. KSNS has a wide selection of potted native plants ready for planting. Shop for native seeds online at https://klamathsiskiyouseeds.com/shop. KSNS seed packets are shipped to you via USPS from our off-grid homestead at the headwaters of the Applegate River.

Cornucopia Acres, located in Grants Pass, grows plants 100% native to the Pacific Northwest using organic soil and practices. In addition to growing starts in the Spring, they also sell bareroots, bulbs, and meadow mixes in the Fall. Learn more at www.CornucopiaAcres.com.

Klamath Native Plant Nursery, located in Ashland, grows a small number of native plant species, offering ferns propagated from spore and drought-tolerant shrubs and trees.

White Oak Farm & Education Center is a small, nonprofit farm-based nursery and education center dedicated to cultivating connections between people and their local ecosystems by pursuing community food security, fostering agricultural and ecological diversity, and teaching the arts of sustainable living.

Pollinator Project Rogue Valley is a volunteer-led Oregon-registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit concerned about the health of our native pollinators and plant communities. We offer multiple programs to help realize our goal to increase, protect, and steward native plants for native pollinators. Our Growing Gardens for Pollinators program encompasses our on-site nursery, where we propagate native plants to share with the community through donations and plant sales. Seed is packaged and sold or donated to schools, community gardens, and other community partners.
