Annual Fund-Raising Activities

The Eastern Shore Master Gardener program is a non-profit organization and each year we hold two fund-raising activities.

Our main fund-raising activity is plant the Fall Plant Sale. The plants sold at these events are grown by Eastern Shore Master Gardeners or donated by local nurseries. Plants include native perennials, annuals, herbs, shrubs and trees. The plants are varieties that are easy to grow on the Shore and each plant has growing instructions included.
