Once again, the Plant Sale will be online and curbside
Having figured out how to navigate a contactless Plant Sale in 2020, we now have a great template and can avoid some of the glitches we experienced last year. While, like you, we miss seeing old friends and wandering the paths at City Farm taking in fabulous plants, we know that the most important thing about the event is being able to provide healthy plants so you can grow your own delicious food this summer. Want early entry, 10% off your Plant Sale purchase and organic compost? Become a member!
SCLT members will be able to order online starting on May 10 (May 11 for non-members)
SCLT members will be emailed a link to a separate Plant Sale website the morning of May 10 (just as members have enjoyed early access to previous Plant Sales at City Farm). The retail site will be open to the public on May 11. We will again offer about 180 varieties of vegetable, herb, fruit and flower plant starts.
Curbside pickups will take place over four days, from May 15-18, at City Farm
Updated information about this year’s Plant Sale will be sent to those on our mailing list, and posted here and on our social media pages. If you don’t already receive our monthly e-newsletter, you can sign up for it here.
We will again donate plants through Hope’s Harvest RI
In light of the tremendous increase in food insecurity in the past year, SCLT will collaborate with the nonprofit Hope’s Harvest RI to donate roughly 3,000 plant starts to individuals and families in need who want to grow their own food. Plant Sale customers will be invited to help us defray this cost by making a donation online along with your purchases.
