577 Plant Sale this Saturday!

The 577 Annual Plant Sale begins this Saturday, May 4!

Bennett and Samantha, our skilled horticulturists at 577, have been busy in the greenhouse, working tirelessly to cultivate the freshest and most vibrant organic veggies and flowers for your garden. A large variety of tomatoes will be available again, as well as peppers, onions, brassicas, herbs, annual and native flowers, and more.

The sale will take place in the newly renovated Courtyard, with sales opening on Saturday, May 4, from 9am to 5pm. Plants that remain will be available on Sunday, May 5, from 9am to 5pm, and then will be available for purchase in the Welcome Center & Curiosity Shop during normal operating hours – Monday through Saturday, 10am to 5pm.

The plant sale happens rain or shine. Don’t wait too long, our plants are sold on a first-come, first-served basis and we expect them to go fast. Last year, thanks to your enthusiasm, we were almost sold out by the end of the day on Saturday.

All proceeds from our plant sale fundraiser will be invested back into 577’s programs, services, buildings, and gardens. Sales tax will be applied to all purchases.
