Pollinator Palooza Native Plant Sale
Native plants for native pollinators
Every garden, no matter how small, has an important role to play in protecting pollinators. Planting native plants is an essential part of creating food and habitat for our native pollinators. However, finding native plants can often be a challenge. Sustainable Saratoga held our first Pollinator Palooza native plant sale in June of 2022 to make native plants available in the Saratoga area.
That first sale was an unqualified success, drawing plant and pollinator lovers from Saratoga and surrounding counties. We sold over 1500 plants of 30 varieties selected for suitability to our area. Pollinator Palooza is now an annual June event.
This family-friendly event includes
- Native plants for sale
- Information about native plants
- Information about native pollinators
- Help with gardening questions
- Regional organizations focused on native plants and ecosystems
- Activities for children
- Raffles to win books, gift certificates, plants, and more

It’s a labor of love
Thanks to the generous support of Oligny’s Greenhouse in Gansevoort, NY, all plants are raised locally, and lovingly cared for by Sustainable Saratoga volunteers.
