It’s finally time to think spring! Revitalize your home garden, apartment or dorm with beautiful, local plants grown in the Penn State greenhouses by Student Farm Club members. A variety of more than 60 vegetable plants, herbs and succulents will be available for sale on Friday, April 26 from 10am – 5pm in Headhouse II, across from the Berkey Creamery on Curtin Road.

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to get your spring seedlings, refresh your home and garden for spring and support a great cause benefiting students. Plants available for sale this year include: succulent and herb varieties, tomatoes, watermelon, peppers (we have more bell peppers this year!), eggplant, broccoli, squash, kale, cucumbers, Brussels sprouts and more. In addition to plants and succulents, Student Farm merchandise will be available for sale. Yes, we have new t-shirts!

Accepted forms of payments include cash or check. Please remember to BYOB (bring your own bag) to transport seedlings and plants. All proceeds benefit the Student Farm Club. The early bird gets the worm–the number of plants available for some varieties are limited, and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our seedlings look really great in 2019, and we’re so excited to share them with you!
