BIG Summer Plant Sale

(Saturday and Sunday, May 19th and 20th, 10:00 to 3:00, at 318 Chase Road, Dartmouth)
Get your garden off to a great start, with vegetable starts grown in the new greenhouse at Helfand Farm Community Gardens!  We specialize in vegetables (especially tomatoes!) but there will also be flowers and herbs.

All vegetables grown are varieties that do well in the South Coast region, using the best natural techniques.  That means healthier plants and a bounty of fresh tasty vegetables.  All of the proceeds go to support the volunteer-run Community Gardens, including our Soup Kitchen Garden.  So this is a great chance for you to support a great cause, while getting some great plants.  We appreciate your support!
