Amazon Spheres Plant Sale Benefitting Woodland Park Zoo

From Jan. 9-22, Seattle’s Periodic: A Pop-Up Shop is hosting a fundraiser for Woodland Park Zoo featuring rare plants for sale from the Amazon Horticulture Department at the Amazon Spheres. The Amazon Spheres features over 3,000 unique species of plants from around the world; this is the first time these plants are being made available for purchase to the public.

Reservations are now full, but you can sign up to be put on the waitlist. Be sure to follow Periodic on Instagram and Facebook for any updates.

100 percent of proceeds from the plant sale will support Woodland Park Zoo’s Living Northwest Conservation Program. This program includes conservation efforts to help save regional amphibians, bats, raptors, western pond turtles, Northwest carnivores, and Oregon silverspot butterflies. It also aims to enhance the ability for people to live side-by-side with wildlife.

Amazon Horticulture staff have created detailed plant care sheets and will be on site during the sale to answer questions. The department is donating over 2,000 tropical plants that represent more than 75 different species to help raise funds to support Woodland Park Zoo’s program.

Periodic: A Pop-Up Shop is located at 2252 7th Ave. Seattle, WA 98121.
