Growing Collective Plant Sale

Let the Growing Collective help you start your garden off right!

Farmshed’s 7th Annual Plant Sale will be held on Memorial Weekend! – Stay tuned for more details.

The Growing Collective, created in 2013, is a group of Stevens Point area gardeners who organize to take on the spring growing challenge together.  The group is made up of both first-time and experienced home gardeners, along with several community groups. They promote organic growing methods, collective leadership, group decision-making, collaborative learning, thoughtful planning, shared knowledge, and diversity among membership. This year the group is 40 members strong including volunteers of Tomorrow River Community Charter School, Portage County Farm to School, Giving Gardens of Portage County, and UWSP Students for Sustainability. Together we have already volunteered over 1,200 hours to bring this sale to the community!

To get involved by becoming a volunteer, or to learn more, contact Central Rivers Farmshed by emailing volunteer@farmshed.org or calling 715.544.6154.
