Always a favorite with local gardeners, be sure to attend the 2016 annual plant sale at Lower Nehalem Community Trust. The event is a fundraiser to support the Community Garden in its effort to educate and share with the community. LNCT’s annual vegetable plant sale has everything you need to get underway with your veggie garden. Plan to arrive early at Alder Creek Farm for the best selection of favorites like tomatoes, broccoli, squash, lettuce, herbs and flowers.

“The benefits of vegetable, fruit, herb and flower gardening cannot be underestimated,” said Karen Matthews, LNCT Garden Coordinator. “Not only do gardeners get the enjoyment of planting, tending, harvesting and consuming, but the blossoms provide habitat for native pollinators of all kinds. We love inspiring our community to grow their own food and enjoy the beauty of a garden.”  Along with the vegetable plant starts there will also be some bulk gardening supply materials at affordable packaged sizes for the home garden. And this year we will offer some native trees for your yard and garden.

LNCT’s annual vegetable garden plant sale raises funds for the Trust’s Community Garden Program, in which 40 active gardeners come together each week to learn how to grow food in the coastal climate, share the work, and share the bounty with their families and the North County Food Bank.

To reach Alder Creek Farm & Natural Area, turn south off of Hwy 101 at Underhill Lane between Manzanita and Nehalem.  Follow the Lane to the end of the road.  Parking is free but limited so ride-sharing, biking and walking are encouraged.
