Get growing: Duluth Community Garden Program Sale

If you haven’t started your spring planting, the Duluth Community Garden Program‘s Annual Plant & Seed sale could help jumpstart your garden.

On Saturday, May 25, they’re selling high quality seeds and transplants, grown locally by Fairhaven Farms, on the lower level of the Peace Church in Duluth from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m..

Thanks to a program with Essentia Health, the transplants are available at discounted, sliding-scale rates based on income.

Program Director Megan Wylder told The Lift the program is grateful for the hospital’s support for the second year in a row, “We know that everyone has the space or time to start a their own (garden), but we know it really helps gardners get a leg up in our short growing season.”

“We’re supporting our local farmers… This is a great way to increase the accessibility of gardening.”

They’re selling a wide variety of vegetables, along with both beauty and pollinator flowers.

DCGP members can get in an hour earlier, 9 a.m., for first dips on their favorite plants.
