Annual Seedling Sale
Your one-stop seedling shop.
All great things develop from small beginnings - your Spring garden included.
Our Annual Seedling Sale happens mid-May. With its arrival, we rejoice: we made it to Spring!
This event is one that our entire member community looks forward to every year. It’s more than a place to pick up your seedlings - it’s a time to reimagine your space and grow something that nourishes your heart, soul and belly.
How it works:
Due to Covid-19 restriction, we are adapting. Similar to the 2020 sale, the event will be mostly an online sale, connecting our farmers directly and safely with you.
How to order your seedlings
We’ve listed each participating farmer’s websites or PDF below. Pursue them from the safety of your home, and contact them directly to order. Each farmer has their own instructions, so please follow respective directions carefully.
How to pick up your seedlings
You and the farmer will arrange a pick up time according to the pre-scheduled co+op on site dates and payment options. Our co+op will be a pick up only location on the days scheduled for each farmer and the time that you and the farmer have agreed upon.
How to get your seedling questions answered
The Mustard Seed will only be a pick-up point, which means we are unable to answer any questions we get about seedlings on behalf of the farmers. Please contact the farmer directly with any inquiries.
We have several confirmed farms, please see their seedling lists here:
