*****Annual Plant Sale TODAY & SATURDAY*****

Annual Plant Sale

The Edna Drinkwater School, 56 Bayside Road, Northport, will host our annual plant sale on Friday, June 5th from 1:00-5:00 and Saturday, June 6th from 9:00-1:00. A variety of vegetable, fruit, herbs, and flower seedlings will be available in 6-packs, single pots, and hanging baskets. We will be following social distance guidelines and will set up with a curb-side model. Upon arrival, you will fill out an order form, and then we will provide you with your seedlings as available. We appreciate your support of our plant sale! We are sad not to have our amazing students running the show this year, but happy to provide our wonderful community with seedlings, which will be offered by donation this year. Look forward to seeing you soon! For more information, contact Abby Plummer at 338-3430 or
