Plant Sale and Native Plant Marketplace
Celebrate spring! Looking for perennials, annuals, vegetables, herbs, and house plants? Find new plants to brighten up your garden, attract pollinators including butterflies, honey bees, native bees, bats and insects, or add to your wildflower meadow! Discover a great selection of North American native perennials for sun and shade, including groundcovers, grasses and pollen magnets. Many of these are native to Massachusetts and help to create habitat for birds and other wildlife. There will also be a variety of donated garden favorites. Experienced gardeners will be available to answer questions and assist with plant selections. All proceeds will benefit Museum programs.
In addition, there will be two special screenings of the life and career of America’s first female landscape artist, Beatrix Farrand.
