March Edible Plant Sale Sells Out Thanks to 1900 Shoppers

Peas

Seattle Tilth’s 4th March Edible Plant Sale was a great success! Over 1900 of you came out to the Pacific Market Center on March 16. 15,600 local, organic, and sustainable vegetable and herb starts flew out the door, with so few left over we had our first “sold out” March sale!

People also snapped up cloche kits, floating row cover, 230 bags of compost and potting soil, dozens of books and hundreds of seed packets. Attendees enjoyed the vendors and great presentations by Seattle Tilth educators. Topics included season extension, growing onions and container gardening. The plants themselves looked amazing — it is impressive to imagine all those plants becoming tasty meals. Even with a location change to SODO the sale  went smoothly, other than slightly uncooperative weather.

Special Thanks to our Sponsors

Kudos to our Volunteers

Many, many thanks to our wonderful volunteer crew who made the sale a success! Over 170 volunteers helped out at the event from beginning to end — the event would not run so smoothly without them.
