|Last year over 500 gardeners bought more than 20,000 seedlings at our first online order/curbside pickup Seedling Sale. Due to the volume of customers and the small space for our seedlings, we have decided to repeat this process for our 2021 sale with two important changes, an early-access purchasing option for Friends of the Farm (read on to learn how to become one) and the reconfiguring of the online store so that customers sign in first and then order. We are doing this to express our appreciation to our donors who keep the Farm strong and to improve the robustness of the online store to process the high volume of orders.|
Monday, April 5, at NOON – Seedling Sale Early Access opens to our current Friends of the Farm. (A current Friend of the Farm is someone who has donated at least $50 since November 1, 2020. In order to have early access, your donation must be received by midnight on April 4. If you make a donation on April 5–7, you will not have early access to the store due to the way our database program works. Avoid disappointment if you want early access, and donate before midnight on April 4.
|The early-access link to order will be sent by email on April 5 at 10 am to the email address on the account from which the donation was made. Remember that it may go to another member of your household depending on which email address is connected to your donation.|
Wednesday, April 7, at NOON – Seedling Sale online store opens to the public
|When you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to sign up for a pickup slot.|
Friday, May 14–Monday, May 17 – Customers pick up their orders at the Farm in the afternoon by prescheduled appointments.
