HECTOR, N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County’s Master Gardener Program will hold their Annual Plant Sale and Farmer’s Market, Saturday, June 19, from 10 am to 3 pm at the Hector Fireman’s Grounds, 5736 NY-414, Hector, NY 14841.
“This is the second year that we’ve combined our Plant Sale with the Farmer’s Market,” said CCE Schuyler Educator Roger Ort. “There isn’t a better spot for the public to find garden and orchard plants, tools, and great local foods all in one place.”
At the Plant Sale will be a choice selection of annuals, perennials, vegetables, fruiting plants, herbs, trellises, produce, tools, and pottery. The Farmer’s Market will offer some of our area’s best and healthiest foods. Some products donated by area businesses will also be for sale in support of the Master Gardener program. All proceeds benefit CCE Schuyler’s Master Gardener programming.
During the Plant Sale, the Hector Lions Club will be offering a Chicken BBQ.
Master Gardeners will be available throughout the day to provide advice on all your growing questions.
Master Gardeners receive instruction from experts at Cornell Cooperative Extension and elsewhere on a broad spectrum of subjects applicable to home gardening, such as plant nutrition, soils, vegetable and fruit culture, diseases and insects that affect plants, pruning, and much more. After certification, they serve as volunteers, teaching classes, answering questions, writing articles, and conducting other outreach.
