Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District

Spring plant sale fundraiser launched

Fri, 01/21/2022 - 8:15am

    Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District’s 2022 Spring Plant Sale Catalog is now available in print and online! Plants are available for pre-order, either online or by mail through Tuesday, April 19. This year we are offering curbside pick-up of your orders on Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14 and “Cash and Carry” on Saturday, May 14 at Union Fairgrounds. Quantities are limited so order early – and often – for the best selection!

    This annual spring fundraiser provides more than 180 varieties to choose from: bareroot fruit trees and berries for the home orchard and garden; native conifers, deciduous trees, shrubs and vines for conservation, wildlife, and landscape enhancement; and native, organic, Maine-grown perennials and herbs in one-gallon pots for pollinators. The plant list includes new varieties in all categories as well as tried and true favorites. As always, the print catalog offers descriptions of the plants and cultural requirements to aid in choosing the right plant for the right place. Plant care fact sheets and more information, including plant images, may be found on our newly updated online store and website.

    The proceeds of this fundraiser support our youth and adult conservation programs throughout the year. We depend on volunteers to help pack orders and distribute to customers. Volunteers receive some perks as a thank you for helping with our largest annual fundraiser. If interested, please contact louisa@knox-lincoln.org
