Bandon Good Earth Garden 2018 Plant Sale a BIG Success! Plan now to attend 2019 Sale!
The annual Good Earth Community Garden Plant Sale was May 4th and 5th at the Farmers and Artisans Market in Old Towne Bandon. We sold hundreds of organically grown vegetables starts, herbs and flowers, unusual house plants and shrubs and flowers for outside. The silent auction items included, among other things, a fantastic 6-foot tall Norfolk Island Pine and a sturdy potting bench! Special thanks to Jennifer Ewing and Master Gardeners for providing information to enhance the gardening experience for all participants.
