Special 2023 holiday houseplant sale for foundation members and Master Gardeners!!
Our 2023 Plant Sale was a resounding success!
The Plant Sale is our major funding event of the year and your participation made this year a huge success! The Saturday appointments enabled us to better manage the parking and shoppers, making the sale less hectic for shoppers and our volunteers. We will plan to continue the appointment based sale in 2024 with improvements based on lessons we learned this year.
Changes to watch for in 2024 – we plan to offer appointments on Friday and Saturday of Mother’s day weekend. Foundation members will be invited to schedule their appointments before the public. If you want early access to 2024’s plant sale, consider joining our foundation as a member.
To everyone that came to the 78th Street Heritage Farm Mother’s Day weekend plant sale… thank you!
Our foundation leases the greenhouses at the 78th Street Heritage Farm in Vancouver, WA where we grow the plants we sell each Mother’s Day weekend at our plant sale which is our largest fund raising event.
The Dig team has begun collecting and propagating perennials for next year’s sale!
The dig team starts collecting donated plants and propagating perennials each fall through winter, preparing to offer a large selection of plants for local gardeners.
Plant sale teams will start growing plants for 2024’s sale in January
Master Gardeners and foundation volunteer teams begin planning for the next year’s sale soon after each Mother’s Day plant sale is finished. Greenhouses dedicated to growing the plants we sell become busy in early January.
But mostly, thanks to you
You purchased plants by the arm-load and by the cart-load. Thank you! The monies generated by the plant sale are the largest foundation funding event of the year. The proceeds generated by the sale are used to fund horticulture education grants throughout Clark County and are a major source of funding for the Clark County Master Gardener Program. These monies support our small fruit team, school garden coordinator activities, many workshops and educational events, and much, much more. Thank you again for your generous support.
