In a lovely partnership between Hypha and the Salish Sea Trading Cooperative, a box of plants set sail on June 26th for Port Ludlow on the Olympic Peninsula. They were sent as gifts to the Port Ludlow Inn to show support for sail transport of goods, a method of local transportation that does not rely on fossil fuels for energy. The plants sailed on the Vicky Lee from Ballard. Special thanks to Kathy and Ty for making this a possibility!
I was amused by the prospect of sending native plants by sea, as a great many of our naturalized plants came to this continent that way, and it will be fun to chart plants off the map into terra incognita.
We sent a variety of PNW native and naturalized plants and seeds that will support pollinators of all kinds!!
