It’s time for the KCCG Spring Plant Sale 

Get ready to start planting asparagus, berries, broccoli, kale, lettuce and other spring vegetable seeds and plants with a visit to Kansas City Community Garden’s Plant Sale this week.

You’ll find a variety of plants that were grown in the Kansas City Community Gardens (KCCG) greenhouse, including asparagus, berries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale and lettuce. Onion, leek and scallion plants and seed potatoes will also be available.

The sale will be held at KCCG, 6917 Kensington, Kansas City, MO from March 24-26. The first day of the sale, Thursday, March 24, is reserved from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. for KCCG Green Card (low-income) members. Beginning Friday, March 25, the sale is open to the public to purchase KCCG memberships, plants and seeds from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Saturday.

KCCG will host a satellite sale from 5 – 6 p.m. Monday, March 28 at the Jersey Creek Community Garden, Heathwood Park at 11th Street and Parallel Parkway, Kansas City, KS. After the sale days, plants will be available at the KCCG office.

KCCG is a non-profit membership organization with annual membership fees ranging from $2 – $25, based on income. Members receive 10 free packets of seeds, a 10-pound bag of chicken manure fertilizer and discounted pricing on additional seeds, plants and supplies. Memberships may be purchased online at KCCG or at KCCG’s office.

Each year the garden provides nearly 50,000 seed packets, from arugula to watermelon, and more than 160,000 greenhouse seedlings to home and community gardeners.

In 2021, more than 42,000 households – one in every 20 in the KC metro area – harvested food from a KCCG-supported garden or orchard. KCCG supports a network of more than 750 school and community gardens and orchards and nearly 3,000 home gardeners in their efforts to grow affordable, healthy food.

As a non-profit organization, it focuses on making gardening affordable for all KC residents. KCCG offers plants, seeds and supplies to low-income clients at prices significantly lower than retail stores. With an investment of about $25 annually and a little practice, KCCG estimates that families can grow about $500 of organic produce.

Members can also rent a garden plot or raised bed for as low as $8 a year at one of nine KCCG community gardens. The gardens provide water access, a picnic area, compost area and shelter and portable toilet.
