Student Farm Club To Host Eighth Annual Plant Sale April 29

The Penn State Student Farm Club is hosting its annual plant sale to wrap up the spring semester on Friday, April 29. The eighth annual fundraiser will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Headhouse II across from the Creamery on Curtin Road.

Members of the Student Farm Club have raised and seeded all of the vegetables available for sale, which include tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, broccoli, and more. Veggies and herb seedlings for sale will go for $2.50 each or five for $10.

The vegetables and herbs are sold as seedlings and the Student Farm Club offers an online Seedling Care Guide to help keep them growing after purchase.

Plants native to Pennsylvania will also be sold at the sale and are sourced from Tait Farm and North Creek Nursery through a partnership with Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center. Some of the native plants for sale include ox-eye sunflowers, common milkweed, and bee balm. Native plants will go for $7.50 each or three for $20.

Shaver’s Creek will host a second sale just for the native plants on April 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center.

Don’t forget to bring a box or bag to carry purchased plants, and the Student Farm Club will only take cash or check for payment. The Student Farm’s website has a full list of all plants available for purchase. Happy planting, Penn State!
