Plant Start Sales at School Garden Carts

As you get ready to put your garden in this year……make sure to visit your local school to purchase plant starts from the school garden carts!

In early May, the garden stands will sell vegetable starts and seeds to encourage home gardening and raise money for the schools farm to school activities. The program will also include farm field trips for 3rd and 6th grade students including standards based science curriculum on the farm. Check with your local school for specific dates for each sale.
