e already have over 1,500 plants for the Huge Plant Sale at the Hall June 10-11.


"I will be doing some pre-Ramble sales at Forester Rd after May7 for Ryder Lake Residents who want to get a head start before the Ramble,"  says Peter Whitlock, president of the Ryder Lake Farmer's institute. "Thanks to everyone who has donated plants so far with a special thanks to Gretel Hunter who dropped off flats of them."


The plan is to only take a sample of the blueberries and raspberries to the Hall and sell the rest of them from the nursery at the farm 47644 Forester Rd.  All funds raised from plant sales go to Ryder Lake Hall Maintenance account. The only exception are the blueberries and raspberries where we share the revenue with The Local Harvest Market who donated the plants and Valley Permaculture Guild who organized the plant glean.
