Plant and Garden Art Sales
Twice a year, the UC Mariposa Master Gardeners of Mariposa County present a Spring and Fall plant and garden art sale. These sales offer unbelievably low prices and access to plants suited to our local climate and often varieties that are difficult to find at a commercial nursery.
- Plants include: tomatoes, vegetables, herbs, California natives, drought-tolerant, annuals, perennials, succulents, grasses, trees, shrubs, and house plants. Bring boxes to transport.
- Hand Crafted Garden Art.
- Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer your gardening questions. We will also feature Garden Art from our talented Master Gardeners and information on Plant-a-Row (how you can grow food to donate to those in need).
The sale takes place at the Mariposa Fairgrounds, 5007 Fairgrounds Road at the Amigo Picnic Area.
