Shopping and volunteering at our Wild Ones booth at SNR’s Wildflower Market 2017

Rows of potted plants

Thirty-three volunteers helped sell 1,871 Missouri wildflowers in 2016.

Wild Ones – St. Louis Chapter will be selling native plants during the Spring Wildflower Market at Shaw Nature Reserve on both Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13. We hope you will shop our booth at the sale, as the profits are our Chapter’s main source of income. Come shop with us first! 🙂

Attention Members: We are still seeking volunteers to help on Saturday. If you volunteer, you will receive a discount off of each plant purchased from our Wild Ones booth as a thank you. Sign up here.   

“Largest selection of native wildflowers available in the St. Louis area…” which “…will offer hundreds of varieties of Missouri native annual and perennial wildflowers, ferns, trees and shrubs to use in home landscaping and to attract wildlife” from the Shaw Wildflower Market website page.

In addition, many other vendors will be at the Market, including local-area nurseries who will be selling native plants. Other organizations will be selling products, such as bread, meat, honey, toffee, chocolate, baskets, and books.

The Market is a great place for purchasing native plants to add to your garden, talk with growers, meet other native-plant enthusiasts, and of course, support Wild Ones – St. Louis Chapter and Shaw Nature Reserve.
