The nonprofit NatureScaping of SW Washington is having our annual fundraiser plant sale and this year we are going to feature pollinator plants along with our regular selection of bare root trees, shrubs, and perennials. The focus is on flowering landscape shrubs, perennial natives, and fruit trees.

NatureScaping is once again hosting their annual Bare Root Tree, Shrub & Perennial Sale to be held April 25- 26 & May 2 from 10 am – 3 pm at the Wildlife Botanical Gardens located at 11000 NE 149th Street, Brush Prairie; west of the CASEE Center.
This is the organization’s largest fundraiser, held in cooperation with students from the adjacent Center for Agriculture, Science, and Environmental Education who will be selling landscaping plants as well as vegetable starts. NatureScaping is offering a wide selection of trees, shrubs, and perennials starting at only $8, $5, and $1 respectively. There will be Mason Bee cocoons 10 for $15 and garden photos. Quantities of the most popular varieties will be limited but members of NatureScaping get the best selection early on April 25th at 9:00 am. Membership is only $20 and can be purchased on site. NatureScaping will also have people on hand during the sale to answer any questions and to assist in loading plants.
One of the best ways a homeowner can learn about which plants are right for their site is to visit the Gardens where natives are incorporated along with self-sufficient food production and more traditional landscape designs. NatureScaping maintains several specialty theme gardens, open year-round and spread over three acres in Southwest Washington. The gardens, and devoted volunteer gardeners, demonstrate and teach area residents classes in pruning, mason bee keeping, and other gardening concepts that attract bees, birds, butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife to residential gardens. All proceeds benefit NatureScaping in its mission to help educate the public about wildlife friendly gardening practices and the use of native plants.
NatureScaping relies on volunteers to prepare the plants in the weeks prior and help on the day of the sale itself. Volunteers get a free plant or tree for each 4 hour shift worked. Training is provided for anyone who is new to this fundraising sale, and groups are welcome. More information is available from firstname.lastname@example.org.
