The priority for the distribution of Native & Adapted Plant Guides, paid for by Austin citizens, are Grow Green nurseries and program partners.

We only sell the Plant Guides by the box of 40.
- Option One: Pick up a box (or two) of 40 copies at our office in Austin. There is a $1 per guide/$40 per box charge
- Option Two: Have a box (or two) of 40 copies mailed to you. The charge is $2 per guide/$80 per box
Please Note : The plant guides cannot be sold for profit or as a fund-raiser. If they are resold it has to be for the price that was paid for the guide. (If you pay $1/guide you can only resell them for $1). Entities that violate this policy will not be allowed to purchase the guides in the future.
