Get your Fall garden started at our Second Annual Fall Plant Sale! There will be hundreds of plants for sale on Sunday, August 29th at the Bounty Community Farm, located at 55 Shasta Ave in Petaluma. The plant list includes: leeks, onions, broccoli, broccolini, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kohlrabi, beets, peas, marigolds (that should flower in time for Dia de los Muertos), chard, collards, kale, cilantro, oregano, parsley, sage, cat grass, artichokes, arugula, salad mix, stir fry mix, bac choy, lettuce, radicchio, and a few other surprises! Specific varieties will be published closer to the event- stay in touch via the webpage or the Facebook event!
Proceeds from the Second Annual Fall Plant Sale support the Bounty Community Farm Programs and other initiatives that provide healthy food to low-income families and seniors that may not otherwise be able to afford it. Grow your own food while helping others grow theirs and promote year-round gardening!
Veggie seedlings ready for planting will start at $3.00. Thanks to our sponsors, Petaluma Bounty will be offering a dollar for dollar match, up to $20, for anyone purchasing their edible plants with CalFresh (EBT)! We will gladly accept EBT cards, cash, and credit for payment at this event.
In response to feedback from the 2020 Plant Sale, we will reserve 9am-11am for those that are 65+, immunocompromised, or paying with EBT (CalFresh). The intent is to ensure that those who cannot purchase their plants at other commercial outlets, due to health or payment considerations, have the opportunity to do so at our community farm .
Due to the continued presence of Covid-19 in our community, and lessons from the 2020 Plant Sale, we have made the following changes to the format:
- All customers will need to sign up for a 30 minute time slot, through Calendly to limit the amount of people on the farm as we comply with social distancing guidelines. We will post the link on our website on August 15th, 2021.
- Please limit your party’s number to the minimum number needed to get your plant purchases done.
- Once you arrive at the farm, we will check you in- make sure you’re on the list, have a mask, and orient you to the site.
- You will then have 30 minutes to make your selection and pay for your plants. Do your research ahead of time to make the most of your time. Consider making a list of your preferred plants and second choices as we will run out of popular varieties. Plant varieties and descriptions will be posted on August 15th.
Signups will begin on August 15th through Calendly and will be announced on our website and social media pages, such as our Facebook and Instagram You must be signed up for a timeslot to be able to shop.
Once you have a timeslot through Calendly, you will be able to choose your plants at the Bounty Farm on a first come, first served basis based on the timeslot that you pick. We will not use an online platform and thus cannot guarantee the plants you want will be in stock – no holds, no online sales, less fuss!
The first two hours (9-11am) will be for seniors (65+), EBT customers, and those who cannot purchase their plants at other commercial outlets due to health considerations. Please be mindful and considerate when blocking your time slot for the event. If you need assistance with signing up for a time slot, please contact Elizabeth at (707) 364-4866 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plants not sold at this one-day event will be sold the following week at our farm stand on Thursday from 3-6pm and Walnut Park Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from 2-5pm. Any remaining plants will be donated to the community!
