Holly Hill Farm's annual spring organic seedling sale is coming up May 18, 19, 25, and 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Due to the recent cold, rainy weather, the date has been pushed back by a week to give the seedlings more time to grow.
A number of Hingham residents participate in Holly Hill Farm's activities, including Farm Educator and Outreach Coordinator Janice McPhillips, and are customers.
There will be a large selection of vegetables, flowers, and herbs grown from organic non-GMO seeds in top-quality soil. There will also be bags of soil and compost mixes from Vermont Compost, soil amendments from Neptune's Harvest, and lots of seeds for direct sowing into your gardens. There will be old favorites and many new varieties of seedlings as well, including many native plants to help local pollinators and birds. Holly Hill farmers will be on hand to answer questions about growing your own veggies, herbs, and flowers at home.
Special offer for members of The Friends of Holly Hill Farm -- you're invited to the Early Plant Sale Friday, May 17, from 4 to 7 p.m. Not a member already? You can join at the sale. Membership levels start at $45, which support our educational mission.
All proceeds from the plant sale support the nonprofit farm and its community-based education program.
