The annual WOFVA plant sale is an opportunity to purchase regionally sourced native forbs, grasses, ferns and sedges at reasonable prices. Proceeds from the sale go to further the environmental mission of the Wild Ones Fox Valley Area Chapter.
Pre-order sales are now closed. Plan to stop by the WILD Center on May 19th to pick native plants from the variety of additional plants we will have for sale.
This year WOFVA Chapter is again partnering with Outagamie County Master Gardeners Association and the Paper Valley Garden Club to bring a good selection of non-native and native plants to the Fox Valley. See Plant Sale Trail flyer.
Native plants featured through the WOFVA plant sale are high quality nursery-propagated native forbs, grasses, sedges, ferns and vines in 4-inch pots with full green top growth, 1- to 2-year growth. They can be pre-ordered or chosen the day of the plant sale. Trees and shrubs are offered by pre-order only. Volunteers will be on-site to help buyers plan butterfly and pollinator gardens with native plants, or to integrate these plants into their existing gardens. Directions to WILD Center.
Download a copy of the Pre-Order Plant Sale form to see what plants will be available for purchase on the pick-up date, May 19th.
Wild Ones continues in its efforts to save America’s favorite butterfly, along with other pollinators, through our Wild for Monarchs (WFM) campaign. Through WOFVA’s spring native plant sale, we encourage everyone to buy and plant more milkweed (host plant for monarchs) and more nectar plants (food sources for pollinators).
Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to increase biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities.
Wild Ones is a not-for-profit environmental education and advocacy organization.
Please join the mapping project by answering the questions about your property. Photos would be great, but are not necessary. Specific species information is optional.
Since our Chapter beginnings in 1994, Wild Ones Fox Valley Area (WOFVA) continues to celebrate and promote the use of native plants in home and civic landscaping.
