Barbey Maritime Center
The final CCMGA plant sale for the spring will be on Saturday, May 14, at the Barbey Center from 10:00AM until 3:00PM. Once again, the offerings will include a mix of organic vegetables, landscape and bedding plants.
The spring plant sales are one of the primary fundraising vehicles that support the CCMGA’s numerous activities to promote good gardening practices throughout the county. It does so through programs such as a Demonstration Garden at the Fair Grounds where a number of flowers and trees are on display; a Learning Garden at 45th and Lief Erikson Drive in Astoria, exhibiting methods for vegetable and herb gardening particularly suited to our unique Pacific Northwest climate and soil, and whose yield last year ended up in more than 1,200 pounds of fresh produce donated to the Regional Food Bank; the Grow a Row for the Community Program, through which individual Master Gardeners donate produce from their home gardens to local food pantries; and informational plant clinics throughout the year, including regular presence on alternating Sundays at the Sunday Market in Astoria and, beginning this year, on alternate Wednesday evenings at the Seaside Farmers Market.
