Conservation district to host native plant sale, workshops

Posted

 

 

Jefferson County Conservation District’s native plant sale is back after a one-year hiatus. Orders will be taken through Friday, Jan. 28 for bare-root native trees and shrubs.

In an effort to reduce labor requirements and minimize COVID-19 risks, all ordering will be done online by credit card, and there will be no in-person sales on order pickup day.

Details about plant offerings and pricing are posted on the district’s website at jeffersoncd.org.

Accommodations will be made for customers who are unable to order online or by credit card; call the district at 360-385-4105 for assistance.

To help customers pick plants, the district is offering a free online workshop on planning a native landscape. The workshop will be held twice; the first is 4 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 14; and again from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 12.

Joe Holtrop, manager of the Jefferson County Conservation District, will cover basic site analysis, an overview of common native trees and shrubs, plant selection, bare-root plant care, planting, and maintenance.

Register for the workshop by emailing the district at info@jeffersoncd.org; those who register will be sent a link to the workshops. For those who are unable to attend the scheduled workshops, email the district to request the recorded presentation.
