[ARCHIVED] Summit Soil & Water Conservation District Native Plant Sale


Summit SWCD is offering county residents native plants that offer many benefits from improving soil to keeping waterways clean. The long root systems of native plants extend deep within the soil, creating a system of channels that allows water to infiltrate into the soil. In addition, these deep root systems can also remove nutrients and other pollutants from the soil and water. They require little or no fertilizer because they thrive in local soil conditions so not only will you save money on chemical and fertilizer applications, but you can help improve the health of our lakes and streams by keeping extra nutrients and pollutants out of our waterways. 

They have 7 types of kits available each with 10 different species of native plants. Each kit contains 50 individual plants and costs $140.00 (that’s less than $3.00 a plant!)

  • The Rain Garden Kit
  • The Butterfly/Bird Kit
  • The Pollinator Kit
  • The Shade Kit
  • The Wetland Kit
  • The Prairie Kit
  • The Prairie Grass Kit

No need to pickup your plant kit!
The native plant kits will be shipped directly to you, with deliveries beginning in mid-May.
There is no additional charge for shipping. 

Deadline to order is February 28th, 2021
