Mark your calendars for BCCD’s Annual Seedling Sale to be held on April 17, 2020 from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM at the Berks County Agricultural Center (1238 County Welfare Road, Leesport PA 19533).
We are currently accepting pre-orders for the sale. Click here to view the 2020 Seedling Sale: Brochure, Order Form, and Backyard Basics Insert. All pre-orders are due no later than February 21, 2020.
THE DAY OF THE EVENT: In addition to picking up pre-orders, you will have the opportunity to shop our extra stock of seedlings and take part in our “Backyard Basics” educational event, which also includes the fifth annual “Paint the Rain” school competition in which Berks County Students paint rain barrels with a provided theme: Where would we BEE without pollinators?
Don’t miss out on delicious bites–a local Food Truck will be set-up and serving food throughout the event!
Your support of the annual Seedling Sale continues to grow the Berks County Conservation District Scholarship fund and has allowed us to award over $20,000 in 2019 to students continuing their education within the environmental sciences.
