Master Gardeners have plants for sale at Live Vendor Booth
From Special Reports
After months of planning, the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs) are now offering their plants for sale in the safest manner possible during the ongoing pandemic.
Volunteers will be selling plants each Wednesday and Saturday through Oct. 17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Coweta County Farmers Market, located at the Expo Center (197 Temple Avenue, Newnan).
The market is open for senior citizen shopping between 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. and others may shop between 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Only cash and checks accepted.
MGEVs are eager to provide this opportunity to the community and will be on site to answer questions about the plants. Please note that for the safety of the volunteers and the public, social distancing is required and face masks are requested. There will be one-way entry and one-way exit points at the venue, so please pay close attention to all signs upon your arrival at the market.
For those who have attended MGEV plant sales in the past, this will look a lot different compared to previous events, but the high quality of the plants remains the same. Trees, shrubs and perennials will be available with different varieties each week due to limited space at the market. All plants for sale have been propagated or grown by MGEVs.
Funds from the MGEV plant sale support UGA Extension-Coweta County community education programs and fund agriculture scholarships and Coweta 4-H.
For more information about the sale, please contact UGA Extension-Coweta County at 770.254.2620 Ext. 8308 or visit http://ugaextension.org/coweta or on Facebook.
