Spring Plant Sale and EcoMarket

Spring Plant Sale and EcoMarket 2024

Call for EcoVendors and EcoOrganizations. Apply here!

Call for Volunteers! See here for more details.

On Saturday, May 11, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., come to rare’s Slit Barn at 768 Blair Road for our annual Spring Plant Sale & EcoMarket!

Choose from a diverse array of seedlings; hot peppers, sweet peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, squash, herbs of all kind(!), leafy greens, beneficial flowers and native pollinators have been grown by Springbank Food Bank staff and volunteers to fundraise for rare!

While you’re here, be sure to visit the EcoMarket’s vendors underneath the big tent outside the Slit Barn. We are again inviting local artisans, eco-friendly small businesses and socially and environmentally inclined community groups whose gifts can be added to your gardens and homes. Consider supporting locals as you look for a Mother’s Day gift.

This event takes place rain or shine. All proceeds raised by the Plant Sale will support the Food Bank Gardens at Springbank Farm, ensuring the growth of healthy, fresh, organic produce for those in need in our community.

This event takes place on the Haldimand Tract, which spans six miles on both sides of the Grand River, from source to mouth. We are grateful to the original stewards of the rare sites, and we thank them and honour their love and respect for the land as we gather and create community, chi-miigwech, Mississaugas of the Credit and to the Onkwehon:we Peoples of Six Nations of the Grand River, nia:wen.
