(Millbrook, NY) – Spring is a time for fresh beginnings and that means it’s also time for the annual Master Gardener Plant Sale! Master Gardener Volunteers and extension staff will be on site at the Dutchess County Farm & Home Center 2715 Route 44 in Millbrook, NY for the plant sale on Friday, May 19 from 10AM to 4PM and Saturday, May 20 from 9AM to 2PM.
Master Gardener Volunteers grow and sell a wide variety of annuals, perennials, vegetables and herbs. Some of these varieties are “tried and true” favorites; others are exciting new introductions. At this event, we also have a Master Gardener Volunteer information booth set up. Our volunteers are available to answer your gardening questions and to help you make your plant selections.
“We are so excited to see everyone in person and have fully stocked greenhouses ready for our annual sale,” said Joyce Tomaselli, Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County Community Horticulture Resource Educator and program liaison.
Master Gardeners are a group of trained volunteers who work in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County (CCEDC) to extend information and share skills throughout the county. The first Master Gardener volunteer program was started in Washington State in 1972. Dutchess County was the first county in New York State (1975) to train Master Gardener volunteers. There are currently over 100 active Master Gardener volunteers in Dutchess County, and many will be available at the annual plant sale to provide free information and advice! The CCEDC Master Gardener Program is funded through volunteer fundraising efforts and from donations from the public like this event.
