Central Rivers Farmshed

We organize events, programs, workshops and resources that help support a local food economy.

Farmshed’s Growing Collective will be selling over 5,000 annual vegetable and herb starts in the Farmshed greenhouse.  Proceeds will go to support Central Rivers Farmshed.  The plant sale will also feature native plants from UW-Extension, Home Composter™ bins and kitchen pails from Recycling Connections, and fruit tree grafts provided by Field Notes Farm. The Growing Collective will also feature special vegetable starts to grow in containers and even some containers to plant in.  Chef C’s Munchie Mobile will be on site on Thursday and Friday, and tours of the Farmshed facility will be available during the entirety of the sale.
For more information and a list of plant varieties available at the sale, please visit the Plant Sale page here.
