Will COVID-19 protocols be followed?
All staff and volunteers will be wearing a mask and will avoid close contact. Please wear a mask when coming to the farm. Hand sanitizer will be available. Do not come to pick up seedlings if you are feeling ill–please send someone else to pick up your order.
How will the pickup process work?
(Please note: This is different from 2020!)
When you arrive, park your car, bring the container you brought for your seedlings, and go to the check-in tent where you will be given a copy of your pre-paid seedling order. Follow the signs to the locations for vegetables, flowers, and perennials. Volunteers will assist you in picking out the seedlings you have purchased and will check them off your order sheet.
Can I pay for my seedlings at the farm?
To keep track of our inventory, you will need to pay for your order online. You should receive a confirmation email when completing your purchase.
What if I want to buy more seedlings at the farm?
If we have annuals or perennials leftover that did not sell online, there will be a table with these plants that can be purchased by credit card, check, or cash.
Can I plant my seedlings right away?
No, you will need to “harden off” your plants before planting them in your garden, meaning gradually introducing them to the outdoors. Don’t put them in direct sun or a windy location. Take them outside for short periods of time, adding an hour or so each day for a week, to gradually expose them to sunlight, wind, and uneven temperatures. They should be ready to plant in the garden after the danger of frost has passed.
