Farm & Food Friday

Get hopping–the Master Gardener plant sale is today at the Guilford County Ag. Center!

Friday, May 9 & Saturday, May 10:

12th Annual Passalong Plant Sale

9AM to 3PM on May 9 & 9AM to 12noon on May 10
Guilford County Agricultural Center,
3309 Burlington Road, Greensboro, NC 27405

Master gardeners will have perennials, herbs, veggies, ferns, shrubs, trees, and more at “prices that even the big gardening centers cannot match. Since most of the plants come from the gardens and greenhouses of the EMGVs themselves, the sale also offers the opportunity to have gardening questions answered by the people who know the plants best.” 

They’ll also have information boots, presentations, tours of the Demonstration Gardens, plus hot dogs for sale!

In case you didn’t know, the Guilford Master Gardener Volunteers are amazing resources for homeowners. Call them up or go by and they’ll answer your gardening questions as best they can. Additionally, they also offer some great classes! You can click on the link above to find out more.
