Start digging: Earth-friendly plant sale begins May 8 in Northeast

You don’t have to venture out of Northeast to find wonderful green, growing things to fill your garden. 

Avoid crowded gardening chains and head to the 12th Annual Eastside Food Co-op Spring Plant Sale for a more “localized” gardening experience. The sale runs from Saturday, May 8 through Sunday, May 23.

Co-op reps say their greenhouses use earth-friendly growing methods. (see also progressivegardening.org) You’ll find hanging baskets, pots, annuals, perennials, organic vegetables, berries and herbs, native plants, vines and grasses. See the complete plant list at eastsidefood.coop/. You may just find a Mother’s Day gift there.

The Eastside Co-Op is a vendor of fresh, natural, organic and whole foods, as well as nutritional and body care products. The Co-Op opened in December 2003, adopting the “Eastside” name to represent the section of the city lying north of downtown and east of the river.

Establishing a cooperative in Northeast involved a challenging community effort. Read about its history here.

Today, the Co-Op boasts over 2800 member households and launched the popular Northeast Farmers Market, open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., each Saturday from June through October, at the St. Boniface Church parking lot.
