Student Farm Club Brings Spring To Stage College With Annual Plant Sale

As the blues of a State College winter begin to wane away to make room for the blossoming of spring and summer, the Student Farm Club hopes to bring a little life to campus with its annual plant sale.

The club will host its fourth annual plant sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 26 in Headhouse II across from the Creamery. This year’s sale will feature more than 30 different varieties of garden vegetables, herbs, and potted succulents.

Established in 2015, the Student Farm Club provides students with diverse opportunities for engagement with sustainability challenges and solutions in food and agriculture. Through this goal, the club hopes to educate people about sustainable food systems while cultivating community and increasing access to local foods.

Plant sale guests are asked to bring their own bags and boxes to transport their purchased goodies back home. Payment is accepted in either cash or check.

To make the process more convenient, the Student Farm Club is offering a late pick-up option this year. The added option will allow shoppers to pay for the plants in advance and pick them up after the sale between 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

For a full list of the available tomato varieties (a sale favorite), check out the Student Farm website.
