Fund Raising

The largest fund-raising project of the Foundation is the annual Spring Plant Sale, held at the 78th Street Heritage Farm on Mother's Day weekend. Volunteers work all year to dig and divide plants from their gardens (and from community members who invite us to dig in their gardens), weed, plant seeds, root cuttings, transplant, water, fertilize, mix soil, make compost, tag, price, research plants and make signs. Thousands of plants are offered for sale at very reasonable prices, ranging from vegetables, salad bowls, annual flowers, hanging baskets, color pots, perennials for sun or shade, shrubs, groundcovers, house plants, to large trees and more. In addition, the plant sale includes vendors selling specialty plants and garden accessories. Many eager customers attend this popular plant sale and often line up early in anticipation of snagging a one-of-a-kind bargain.

The Master Gardener Foundation volunteers also plant the Welcome to Washington sign on I-5 as a fund raising project each spring in cooperation with WSDOT.

These fund raising efforts allow us to fund the various community grants we award each year.
