Spring Plant Sale

Spring is the ideal time to plant a home garden. Our Annual Spring Plant Sale has become a signature community event that marks the beginning of the season.

During the plant sale, you’ll have the opportunity to see our working garden and experience how our students and campers learn about the seed-to-table cycle. 

During your visit, browse through dozens of different vegetables, herbs and flowers that are ready to be transplanted at your home. Our staff of Garden and Kitchen Educators are also available to help you understand the basics of gardening.
