Annual ‘Taking Root’ Plant Sale

DATE: June 1st, 2024

TIME: 9:00 am-1:00 pm

LOCATION: Tom Settlemire Community Garden

Each year the Land Trust’s Tom Settlemire Community Garden (TSCG) hosts a plant sale thanks to the effort of dozens of volunteers. It’s not just about the plants you’ll find – it’s a wonderful day of celebration and meeting your community of local gardeners. Come join us!

There are an array of perennials, biennials, herbs, vegetable seedlings, annual seedlings, heirloom variety plants, shrubs, small trees and vines available. There will be knowledgeable volunteers on hand to help you choose the best options for your garden.

You can make a difference!
The Tom Settlemire Community Garden works with over 80 local families, puts on free gardening workshops for your community, and helps produce thousands of pounds of food each year for the Mid Coast Hunger Prevention Program. And you can be part of the great work. Here’s how:

  • Come to the plant sale! Proceeds benefit the Garden and you walk away with great supplies at great prices.
  • Volunteer at the sale.


Volunteers are a critical part of the success of the sale. We welcome help with potting plants at TSCG before the sale, and with help with setting up, taking down, or pitching in at the sale itself. It’s a great opportunity to be a part of the community.

We will NOT be accepting plant donations of any kind for the 2024 Plant Sale.

While in years past, donated plants have been an appreciated part of our fundraiser’s success, the Land Trust will not be accepting any plant donations this year due to the rise in invasive jumping worms in Maine’s soils.
