Hello fellow environmental enthusiasts! The Native Plant Nursery of the student guild of the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER-UW), has a Native Plant Sale Sunday, November 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st St, Seattle)! The Native Plant Nursery is a student-run operation that provides plants to the on-campus restoration projects that SER-UW manages. The nursery has an inventory of more than 2,400 plants native to the forests and prairies of Lower Puget Sound, and more than 70 different species! Plants are sourced from plant salvages, donations from local business, campus research projects and classes, and from collected seeds. All proceeds go toward funding SER-UW restoration projects on campus, and providing horticulture learning opportunities for UW students.
This sale is a way to purchase plants that support our native pollinators and the University of Washington’s educational programs. We hope you’ll help spread the word—and come out for the sale this Sunday if you can!
