Plant Sale, Buy Plants for your Garden with Justice in Mind / Hosted by: Regional Environmental Council

Online

Pre-order your plants now! Everyone deserves the right to grow their own food. That's why every spring we give away over 5,000 seedlings to community and school gardens in Worcester. We’ve created a sliding scale payment system for our Annual Plant Sale. When you pay the highest price for your plants, you help cover the costs for your community members to take part in the harvest as well.
