The first half an hour will be for those over 60 and immune-compromised individuals only. If you do not fall into one of these categories, please do not arrive before 11:30!
The entire plant sale will be donation based. We ask that if you have the means, please support LGL. Nonetheless, if you have found yourself financially compromised during this time we will gladly donate the plants to you, no questions asked!
All plants available will be sold/donated on a first come, first serve basis. We will have:

Suggested donation for vegetable 6-packs will be $5 and suggested donation for vegetables in 4 inch pots will be $3. We will also have some “mystery tomatoes” being sold for $1. We will accept cash, Venmo, or Paypal payments. We ask that if you plan to pay in cash that you please bring exact change. We would like to minimize the amount of cash we touch during this time.
If you plan to buy multiple plants, please try to remember to bring your own means of carrying them away.
When you arrive, please do not touch the plants until you have selected the one you plan to purchase.
We will be asking you to return your sanitized pots to us once you have planted out what you bought. More details about this will be available at the plant sale.
We hope to see you there! If you can not make it this time around, we plan to host another plant sale on Saturday, May 9th and will share more information about this as the date gets closer.
