Previous Pollinator Palooza events

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.
