Plant Sale


24th Annual Plant and Garden Market

Benefits: Support our Schools – SOS Book Fund
Date: Saturday, May 8, 9am-1pm and online at https://go.rallyup.com/nef
Location: On the front lawn of Smith Vocational School

This annual garden sale features treasures from local gardens, hanging baskets, veggie starts and herbs as well as raffles for a handmade quilt with a botanical theme and a bench and trellis made by Smith Voc students.

The plant sale raises money for books and online resources for the Northampton Public Schools. Last year’s event was cancelled because of the pandemic.

This year we have moved to a hybrid model of online sales and a masked, socially distanced in-person event – again in response to COVID-19 guidelines.

We are looking for plant donations from local gardeners. If you have perennials to divide or plants you are removing from your gardens, please consider donating to the plant sale.  Potted plants may be dropped off at:

  • 373 N. Farms Rd., Florence
  • 36 Wilson Ave., Northampton
  • 31 Forbes Ave.

Plants may also be dropped off at Smith Vocational (80 Locust St. in Northampton) on Friday, May 7, 4-7pm.

Please try to label them and pot them up early and water them, so they look happy on the day of the sale!

If you need pots, popsicle stick labels, helpers for digging, dividing and/or potting or picking up potted plants please contact Amy Levine at alevine7@gmail.com or Mandy Gerry at mandygerry@gmail.com.

Volunteers are also needed to collect and organize donated plants on Friday, May 7, and to work at the event offering advice and answering questions to gardeners.

Please help us grow the book fund!  Spread the word, donate plants, volunteer and join us either online or in person.
