The sale will take place at the Paulding County fairgrounds inside the Block Building at 503 Fairground Drive, Paulding, OH 45879.
The sale will include perennials, annual flowers, herbs, vegetables, trees, and shrubs. Most items are between $1-$10 each. The proceeds from the sale will go back into the community Master Gardener Volunteer projects and programs. Past projects include trees for Oakwood Park and the Payne Park, planting the bed at the Reservoir Park, assisting with the landscaping at the Habitat for Humanity projects, plants for the fairgrounds and 4-H club projects, assisting the Friends of the Paulding Park Board, the native garden at the Black Swamp Nature Center, downtown Antwerp Village flowerpots, Fort Brown, and MGV memorial garden.
“Volunteering is a great way to give back to our Paulding County community,” stated the Master Gardener Volunteers, “without this sale, our program would not have funds to develop projects within our county.”
During the sale, the Master Gardener Volunteers will be on hand to answer horticulture and gardening questions. Factsheets and general plant brochures will be available for free. Special items are available to youth, under the age of 12, free with a purchase. Bring a child or a friend to experience this great community event. Finally, come early for the best selection of our plants for sale.
