Native Plant Sale – 2022

Our Native Plant Sale will take place on Saturday, May 28, 2022. Order forms will be due two weeks prior to the sale. We will also have extra plants available in the Kankakee Sands greenhouse the day of the sale. Our suggested donation is $1 per plant. Funds from our sale are used to support conservation efforts in Newton County, Indiana (see below).

Order forms will be available in April. In the meantime, there are two ways to learn more about the plants we will offer:

  1. View our Gallery of Native Plants.
  2. Download our native plant list with growing info. The list contains information on soil moisture, sun preference, flowering time, and height of 56 plants we hope to offer in 2022.

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.

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who supported our 2021 Native Plant Sale! This was our most successful sale ever. We raised $3,598 to support conservation work in Newton County.

Our plant sale funds were used to purchase a bison hide for The Nature Conservancy. The hide will be used at Kankakee Sands for educational outreach programs and school groups.
