2016 Plant Sale a success, thanks to our community!

A huge Bounty thank you to all of our day-of volunteers who were an imperative piece to all of our successes at the 2016 Plant Sale! Thank you for your time on Sunday, and for representing Petaluma Bounty to the wider community!

For this event we define success as raising funds for our programs in a manner that encourages more gardening in the community, providing equitable access to plants and food (through our CalFresh match incentive), relationship building and community engagement/memory-making at the Bounty Farm. We sold or re-homed approximately 1,500 plants; brought on several hundred visitors to the farm; and will  donate the remaining plants to local school and community gardens!
