MILLBROOK, N.Y. — Each year, Master Gardener volunteers and CCE staff hold our annual plant sale fundraiser in May, at the Dutchess County Farm & Home Center (2715 Route 44) in Millbrook, NY. This year’s plant sale will be held on Friday, May 13 from 10AM to 4PM and Saturday, May 14 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.

Master Gardeners are a group of trained volunteers who work in partnership with their county Cooperative Extension office to extend information 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. Forty six states now have Master Gardener volunteer programs with over 23,000 people participating nationwide, and more than 1,100 of these Master Gardener volunteers are from NY. There are currently 90 active Master Gardener volunteers in Dutchess County! Our program is funded through volunteer fundraising efforts and from donations from the public. This is the primary fundraiser for the Master Gardener volunteer program and we count on your support!

Visit our website at www.ccedutchess.org for more information, including a list of the plants that will be for sale. Gift certificates are available for the Master Gardener volunteer Plant Sale, which are a welcome gift for any gardener! Certificates may be purchased for any amount and are not redeemable for cash.
