Annual Seedling Sale on May 15 and 16
The Medway Community Farm will be holding its annual seedling sale on May 15th and 16th. You will be able to find almost anything you can think of for your home garden. The Farm always has a great selection of vegetables, flowers, and herbs, both heirloom varieties as well as the tried and true favorites. Maybe this is the year to try a variety of tomato you have never heard of before or the year to have a cook’s herb garden. You can find seedlings perfect for pots on your deck or varieties for that newly dug vegetable garden.
This event, run over two days, brings in many gardeners from Medway and many neighboring towns. Last year the Farm offered an online ordering option and that again will be available, people will be encouraged to visit the website for options and how the pick-up will run so go to the website www.medwaycommunityfarm.org for information. With Covid protocols in place, you will be able to browse the offerings, get some advice on which variety to buy, visit the Farm Store with their new offerings and enjoy the Farm itself and maybe take a walk on the trails.
This will be a chance to get locally-grown seedlings that have not traveled great distances to get to you, thus being ones grown for your climate and zone. This is not a select few mass-produced seedling varieties, it is a curated group of seedlings that you can be assured will grow in the area as this is where they were started. The prices are reasonable, you help a local farm continue their work of providing locally grown organic produce all the while getting a chance to get your hands dirty and experiment with old and possible new favorites.
Medway prides itself on being a green community and places like the Medway Community Farm are a big part of that. The Farm is a community asset and one that has helped provide fresh produce to the food pantry, especially important during this past year, held great classes in conjunction with Medway Community Education for both local children and adults, and provided a wonderful source of locally grown organic produce for purchase. The CSA shares usually sell out and they are always looking for different ways to connect with the community. If you haven’t been to their seedling sale, it is an event not to be missed. See you there!
