our prices can't be beat! We will feature sun-loving and
butterfly-attracting plants and also have a nice selection of wildflowers,
shade lovers, ferns, and even a few shrubs. Rain date is Sunday, September
25, same time. Fee per plant as marked. Payment can be made by cash or check

*ParkFairfax Native Plant Sale, Saturday, September 24, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00
p.m.*

12 to 14 vendors from 4 or 5 states (VA, MD, PA, WV & SC) make this event
the largest native plant sale in the D.C. metro region! If you have enjoyed
this sale in the past, please come again--the number of vendors in future
sales will stay only as high as supported by local demand! Find native
perennials, shrubs, and trees for sun or shade! Several vendors specialize
in some aspect of native plants, such as native azaleas, fruiting shrubs, or
wetland plants. A few do not come here for any other plant sale. A list of
the vendors can be downloaded from the sale website at

* * *EARTH SANGHA NATIVE PLANT SALE, SUNDAY OCTOBER 2, 10am to 2 pm*

"Earth Sangha will be holding a local-ecotype native plant sale of both
woody and herbaceous plants on Sunday, October 2nd from 10 am to 2 pm at its
Wild Plant Nursery in Springfield (for driving directions check:
http://www.earthsangha.org/dca/wpn.html). All of their nursery stocks
(about 40,000 plants and 150 species) are currently available, are of
local-ecotype, and are grown from the seed that they personally collect from
local forests and meadows.

This is a wonderful opportunity to both support an organization which
provides critical restoration of our natural lands, while also purchasing
plants that are normally available only for native restoration projects. The
Arlington Regional Master Naturalists (ARMN) will be partnering with Earth
Sangha in organizing the sale. Information and details about helping with
the sale will be on the calendar on the ARMN website: http://armn.org/
