Community Garden Plant & Bake Sale - Success!

The Orchard & Vine Community Garden's first Spring Plant & Bake Sale was a big success.  Enthusiastic volunteers, yummy treats, wonderful plant donations, nearby coordinated garage sales and sunshine made for a good turnout.  

Randy's fabulous selection of tomato starts he donated sold the quickest followed by cucumber starts.  I already have lots of ideas swimming in my head for what to grow next year.

In total, $300 was raised to support projects and programs at the Garden.    


  1. I will be happy to grow & donate additional veggie starts for you next year. I wish I would have known in advance about the sale. I have gobs of lovely gallon tomato starts that need homes.

  2. Thanks, Lisa! This was definitely a learning year, so we're excited to do some better planning for seed starting next year. We'll be sure to hit everyone up for plant donations. We sold a number of perennials that people divided too. Is your son selling your extra starts this year? If you want to give me a list of what you have available, I could email the community gardeners and see if anyone is interested.
