Please Be Green and Bring Your Own Box

In 2019, we raised $9,700, making the plant sale the major fundraiser for the Durham County Master Gardeners. In 2020, the plant sale was held online due to the countywide Covid-19 stay-at-home order. Still, it raised a very respectable $4,281. Funds are used to support community outreach efforts, including a demonstration garden at 721 Foster Street and Briggs Avenue Community Garden.

Besides buying plants, you can enjoy native plant propagation demonstrations by Durham County Master Gardeners and Keep Durham Beautiful and get your questions answered by Durham County Master Gardeners.
