Kalapuya (Drive-Thru) Plant Sale! Saturday, May 2nd!

Hanging baskets, organic vegetable starts, perennial flowers, and more are available at the annual Kalapuya Plant Sale, Saturday, May 2nd.

We will be providing plant starts to Kalapuya families from 10 am – 12 pm, and open to the general public from 12 pm to 3 pm at Kalapuya High School (1200 N Terry St.).

In an effort to keep everyone healthy, this will be a drive-through only plant sale. Kalapuya staff will be present to bring plants directly to your car. You can preview everything students have propagated here (though availability will diminish as we move through the day).

Even in normal times Kalapuya students work to be part of the solution to pressing challenges of our time. When the COVID-19 situation began to come into focus we immediately ramped up food production in our greenhouse – and this year we will be donating all vegetable starts to local families. We understand that many families are facing unprecedented challenges, and we want to assist our community in whatever ways we can. (Families who want vegetable starts who have not been financially impacted by the virus are invited to make a donation to the Kalapuya Horticulture and Bethel Farm programs to support our ongoing work — online payment option coming soon!

Bethel Farm Update: When we got our first indication that this ‘new normal’ could last months, we immediately changed our propagation plans and seeded as many quick-growing, nutritious starts as possible. We are transplanting these to the farm as quickly as possible. We will provide these vegetables to families through the Produce Plus Food Pantry, held Tuesdays and Fridays (11 am – 3 pm) adjacent to the farm (behind Prairie Mt).
