163. Second Annual LEAF Plant Sale

Start a garden with your kids, it doesn't have to be big, just grow a watermelon, or a pumpkin!!

Second Annual LEAF Plant Sale: May 14, 2011 3:00pm

Are you looking for ways to cut back on expenses, eat healthy, and live “greener?” Did you plan to start your own seeds this year, but didn’t quite find the time. Whether you are a new gardener or an experienced “urban famer,” we have the event for you. Join the Lakewood Earth and Food Community and Lakewood Garden Center for the second annual LEAF Community Plant Sale. Lakewood Garden Center will once again generously host the sale being held on Saturday, May 14 from 3-5 p.m.
Local farmers have seedlings for sale, from zucchini and peppers to heirloom tomatoes of every shape and size. Last year’s vendors, Rennheber Gardens and RidgeBridge Farms will both make return appearances, with additional vendors to be announced.
While you pick up your plants, don’t forget to grab a few bags of compost to help get your garden off to the right start. For one day only (May 14), Lakewood Garden Center will donate $1 to the LEAF Community for each bag of compost sold. Not only will the organic matter improve your soil and improve your harvest, but you will also be supporting a great cause!
