Virus forces this year’s sale to go online only
The Youth Garden Project begins its spring plant sale, which will be held online only this year, 9 a.m. Monday, April 20 through May 3.
“Folks can access the online plant sale at www.youthgardenproject.org/shop/, said spokesperson Emily Roberson.
Delivery is available for a small fee to Moab, Spanish Valley and Castle Valley residents. Additionally, customers can opt to pick up orders at the Youth Garden Project site, a 1.5-acre organic, educational garden next to Grand County High School.
YGP will sell over 90 varieties of sustainably grown plant starts, including tomatoes, peppers, herbs, brassicas, cucumbers, flowers, squashes, melons and more. In addition to vegetable starts, the Youth Garden Project partners with Wildland Scapes and Canyon Nursery to provide cool season veggies, herbs, fruit trees, berries and other fruiting bushes, said Roberson.
All vegetable and flower starts are expertly cared for using organic practices, according to a press release from YGP. Seeds are sourced from regional seed purveyors to ensure maximum adaptability to local conditions. YGP only sells varieties that have performed well in the past. All proceeds from the sale support youth and community programs in Moab.
