Buy Native ~ Naturally!
Add ecological value to your garden by planting species indigenous to New England and the northeastern United States. We expect to offer over 90 species of plants for sale, and we work with at least ten different nursery suppliers to bring you a very diverse selection not available from a single source. Approximately 40% of our sales are pre-orders. All sale proceeds support our programs.
Ask the Experts: At our sale, you can get advice from experienced landscape professionals on plant selection and species best suited to your landscape needs. Any and all questions welcome... and we even have refreshments.
Pre-Sale Orders: Members at the Family/Advocate level and above may pre-order plants prior to the sale to get the exact species and quantities desired. We expect to have more than 60 species to choose from in our pre-order catalog, and it will be e-mailed to members in mid-April. Not yet a member? Become one now. Please support us as generously as you can so that we can continue to offer this great service. It takes months of staff and volunteer time to put our Plant Sale together, so we depend on your generous support to run the sale, and especially to offer you the pre-order option.

Beaver Street Elves at Work: On Thursday and Friday before our sale, we process all your pre-orders and label all the plants.
In 2016 we had 23 volunteers who worked a total of 412 hours to prepare for, and staff, the sale!
After a long day, we can get a little punchy and are ready to relax!
