Our Annual Seedling Sale on Mother’s Day weekend is something our community looks forward to every year for the last 6 years! This means…..we have made it to spring! Our annual seedling sale is coming up, but due to the current situation in the world, we are adapting it to be a new to us and our farmers to a mostly online sale so our farmers can connect directly with you. Please read this post very carefully as we have tried to organize this to the best of all our collective abilities! Our co+op will be a pick up only location on the days scheduled for each farmer and the time that you and the farmer have agreed upon.
We have posted each of our farmer’s websites or PDF lists below so you can peruse them from afar and order DIRECTLY FROM THE FARMER, by following the instructions given from each producers website or PDF (which you email back to the farmer). Each farmers profile will include their contact information. You and the farmer will arrange a pick up time according to the prescheduled co+op on site dates and payment options.
Remember our co+op will ONLY be a pick up point. We will NOT be able to answer any questions we get about seedlings on behalf of the farmers. ALL inquiries are to go to the farmer’s themselves.
The sale this year will be extended – from May 9/10 (the traditional weekend of the seedling sale), starting on May 9th, every Saturday of each week for the month of May.
PICK UP PROCEDURE : We are asking our farmers to set up by using our picnic table as the pick up point, the sidewalk will be for you to approach the table. Please pull up on Inchbury St and give the farmer your name so that you can retrieve your pre paid seedlings from the table. Please be very mindful of social distancing and following our procedures we have in place.
