rare Spring Plant Sale and Eco-Market

May 14 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Looking for another reason to come out to rare’s Spring Plant Sale and EcoMarket? In addition to the thousands of herb, vegetable and flower plants available, we will have a tent full of vendors, artisans and local community groups looking forward to meet you. Among them, we’d like to welcome Melville Café, a Galt institution, who will be on hand to sell coffee, juice, cookies, croissants and maybe some other baked goods. Not only will they be serving hungry and thirsty visitors until 2 p.m., they will be donating 25% of their sales back to rare for its Springbank Gardens programs!

And Melville is just one of fifteen participants in the Eco-Market. Look for more announcements of who else is participating, on our social media feed, and in our next rare eNews.

We would also like to acknowledge two companies who have signed on as sponsors of the event. Thanks to Logical Landscaping and Dirt Cheap for stepping up and sharing their passion for growing things. They will be on hand in their own tents to talk up their services and offer help in making your garden grow.

All funds raised by the rare Spring Plant Sale and Eco-Market go to the Food Bank Garden programs at Springbank Farm. So, come out on Saturday, May 14, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to peruse some plants, meet others in the community who are passionate about growing things, share a coffee and some baked goods, and help fund the work of our Food Bank Garden. We look forward to seeing you there!
