Native Plant Sale

April 21, 2024

10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Included with admission

Celebrate Native Plant Appreciation Month with native plants, coffee, and used books. Enjoy a large variety of native plants for sale from Yes Yes Nursery and Manzanita Nursery, be inspired by educational materials from Santa Ynez Valley Botanic Garden and Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, cozy-up to a cup of coffee (and a bag of compost!) from Considered Coffee Co., peruse a selection of used books benefitting Museum education, and get creative with a free planter-painting activity.

Native plants are vitally important to the biodiversity, beauty, and stability that make Santa Barbara County the ecologically rich place that it is. Healthy native plant populations are generally more self-sustaining and drought-resistant than non-native plants (and can therefore help in conserving water), and support the native pollinators and animals that rely on them for survival.

From 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., enjoy a free guided planter-painting activity. Bring your own planter or recycled container (pickle, peanut butter, or mason jars work great for this!), or take one of ours (while supplies last), and decorate a home for native plant seeds or seedlings!

Yes Yes Nursery will also be offering a free sunflower seed packing activity for children at their booth in the back parking lot, with sunflower seeds, soil, and container included. In addition to their usual incredible coffee, Considered Coffee Co. will be selling compost from their closed-loop system and partnership with Isla Vista Coffee Collective (IVCC). Considered Coffee Co. donates their coffee grounds to IVCC for composting, and then later receives some back as composted soil to sell to the public.
