Common Ground’s Annual Seedling Sale
Friday May 14th 12:30-5:30pm
Saturday May 15th 9:30pm-4:30pm
The regular rhythms of Spring are still being felt here at Common Ground; the trees are starting to bud, the days are feeling longer and brighter and the seedlings in the greenhouse are doubling in size everyday!
We can’t wait to see you at the 2021 Seedling Sale! As the soil warms, we’re approaching the time to plant and grow food. Growing your own food is both a pleasure and a blessing right now…and we’d like to help. Thank you for buying your garden or container plants from us this season.
This year we are excited to add a Seed Swap on May 15th from 9:30-4:00pm! We will have activities (for kids and adults) and celebrate the beautiful diversity of these tiny living things that become the food we eat. Feel free to bring seeds to share (not required!), pick up some seeds you’ve been looking for, share a seed story and more!
We will also have some Basic Vegetable and Flower Gardening Kits that are perfect for a 4×8 raised bed. You can grab and go with a curated collection of plants perfect for your home gardening needs. More details coming soon!
