PVAS annually invites vendors to sell high-quality native plants that benefit pollinators. Plants native to North America with preference to regional varieties (including annuals,perennials, shrubs and trees) are preferred and all must be neonicotinoid free. PVAS sells butterfly weed at the event through a partnership with The Monarch Alliance of Washington County. Garden art, honey, and other related products are included in the event, as will information and experts on pollinators and native plants.
Held in conjunction with "GardenFest" and the Back Alley Garden Tour and Tea in Shepherdstown, WV, the intent of this event is to provide high-quality native plants to our members and the larger community, with a focus on plants that benefit pollinators in trouble like the honeybee and Monarch Butterfly. The Native Plant Sale will take place behind the Shepherdstown Public Library where the Sunday farmers market takes place.
Accepted vendors provide plants that are native to North America. Regional varieties are preferred (including annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees) and all plants must be neonicotinoid free. Further, vendors are encouraged to sell plants beneficial to pollinators such as bees and butterflies. Information about pollinator plants and beneficial insects are always available at the event.
