Native Plant Sale – 2023

Jeanette and Marilyn tend to the plants at The Nature Conservancy’s greenhouse at Kankakee Sands.

Pick-up of pre-ordered plants will be Saturday, May 27, 2023 at the Kankakee Sands Native Plant Nursery (1492 W.250 N., Morocco, IN)

We are no longer accepting order forms.

As always, we will have extra plants available to browse from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturday, May 27 at The Nature Conservancy’s Kankakee Sands nursery, across from North Newton High School. Our selection will be limited as many of our plants were already ordered for our sale.

Seeds for our sale are locally collected by volunteers within the Kankakee Sands ecoregion. Our plants are grown and nurtured in The Nature Conservancy’s Kankakee Sands greenhouse. We ask for a $1 donation per plant. Your donation stays local and supports conservation efforts in Newton County, Indiana.

We are a certified “Grow Indiana Natives” member!

Friends of the Sands offers only native plants and we do not grow non-native, invasive plants. We are listed in the Buy Natives Directory for the Indiana Native Plant Society. We never use neonicotinoid pesticides or any pesticides on our plants.
