The annual University of Minnesota Benton County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers plant sale is back! The sale will take place on Saturday, June 5, 2021 from 8:00-11:00am at Sauk Rapids Middle School parking lot, 901 1st Street South, Sauk Rapids. The sale will be outdoors. You will be able to pay credit card, check, or cash.

In addition to purchasing a wide variety of annual flowers, vegetables and perennials, attendees can seek advice from a number of experienced University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardeners. The Extension Master Gardeners will provide tips on plant selection and planting. They can also help you troubleshoot any current issues you may be facing in your garden.

We will be following the University of Minnesota COVID-19 policies. Masking and social distancing will be enforced. There will be a set number of shoppers allowed into the shopping area at a time to ensure social distancing can be maintained. Single flow shopping will also be used to minimize risk. We appreciate your patience as we accommodate these requirements.

All proceeds support the efforts of the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program in Benton County. Extension Master Gardener Volunteers educate the public about a variety of horticulture subjects using current research-based resources. This educational effort is designed to enhance quality of life and promote good stewardship of the environment. Extension Master Gardener Volunteers complete many hours of volunteer work each year,

providing a valuable in-kind contribution to Minnesota. If you are interested in becoming a Benton County Extension Master Gardener, you can call 320-255-6169 ext. 1 or email wins0115@umn.edu.
