Get your garden started! There will be more than 3,000 plants for sale on April 26th at the Bounty Community Farm, located at 55 Shasta Avenue. With over 25 varieties of affordably priced, sustainably raised vegetables and select herbs to choose from, as well as a sampling of perennials and native plants – everyone is sure to find a good deal for their green thumb!

Click here to view the Plant List – 2015! and here is an extended description of the available varieties.

Variety

There will be popular favorites including New Girl tomatoes and Sungolds along with cherry, slicer and heirloom tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, eggplant, onions, leeks, herbs, lettuce, chard, kale, specialty greens, cabbage, broccoli, melons, winter and summer squash, beans and flowers! Veggie seedlings ready for planting will start at $2.00, and perennials will be priced individually. Come find varieties that work well in your micro-climate and share in the knowledge of Petaluma Bounty’s farm staff, Master Gardeners, and The Petaluma Garden Club.

New for 2015, Petaluma Bounty will host local CSA farmers and farmers’ market managers so you can meet some of our local farm heroes, learn about joining a CSA (box subscription), and what is new at our local farmers’ markets.
