Our last delivery / pickup for our off-season service occurs this Saturday on Easter weekend.
We hope you have enjoyed what we have been able to offer during the colder months of the year. We are all happy to be moving into the new growing season. You will hear from us soon about our plant sales here at the Garden. We will get a newsletter ahead of time with all the details.
For those of you who celebrate Easter, we have wonderful items to make for a nice Easter dinner. The availability of local products will ensure you eat well.
Please try to place your order well ahead of our Wednesday noon deadline. Orders are filled as they are submitted and some items sell out quickly. These items are removed from the order form when sold out.
