Grassroot Grannies 15th annual Plant Sale & Marketplace

May 13 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

A dedicated group of Grassroot Grannies retrieve hundreds of hardy perennials from their gardens, source donations from local nurseries, make garden art and stage an eclectic raffle to raise money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers Campaign which supports African grannies raise their grandchildren whose parents died of AIDS. Every year on the Mother’s Day weekend in May, plant hungry fans come to this popular event while picking up sage advice from master gardeners. The pandemic shut down the sale in 2020 & 2021, but Grassroot Grannies roared back in 2022. Over the past 15 years this event has raised $95,051.
