It’s still winter, but spring is just around the corner! It’s time to place your orders for our spring sales.
The Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District has been holding a spring tree sale at least as long as our Board can remember – and that goes back to 1968! Our primary goal is to make native trees and backyard fruit trees affordable and accessible in our community, and it is also a fundraiser for our conservation programs and education. We are proud to source almost exclusively from Vermont and New York, with only occasional gaps filled by growers in other regions. This ensures the trees we sell you will be appropriate for our climate, and supports our local land-based economy. In 2018 we sold 5,300 stems of 46 different species to over 150 customers. Thank you for your support.
This year we’re piloting some new additions: hops rhizomes and mushroom spawn! We also have new native trees and shrubs, new heirloom apple varieties, and a sour cherry tree. We’re using early-bird pricing again this year so that we can finalize arrangements with our suppliers on-time.
