Our Spring Plant Sale will be held on Sunday, May 5th at the NPSF Nursery!
Order online (open soon); then pick up at the Nursery.
We need your help in the coming weeks to give our plants some tender love and care before the Spring Plant Sale!
These work parties provide a great backdrop to get connected with our board members, to catch up with friends and fellow volunteers, and make new friends as well - they always prove to be a good time for all!
Sign up for an after-work weekday event from 5-7 (come whenever you can, everyone’s schedule is different!); or join for festive Plant Sale Weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10-3:30.
We appreciate your time in this busy season! If you can give an hour or 15, volunteers make NPSF happen!
What we do at the NPSF Nursery:
At the NPSF Nursery (aka the Holding Beds) we propagate plants and store salvaged plants for use in future revegetation and green stormwater projects.
To maintain healthy plants, we organize regular work parties, co-sponsored by Thurston County Steam Team, at our nursery throughout the year.
The agenda for each work party varies: we work to propagate native and water-wise plants, re-pot plants that have outgrown their pots into larger ones, transfer bare-root plant-stock and bulbs to pots, weed and organize already potted plants, keep the walkways clean and safe, and additional projects as needed. Occasionally we clean out the tool sheds, sharpen tools, and take inventory.
