Come celebrate our native wildflowers, herbs, fruits, and local biodiversity. The festival is a full weekend so people can leisurely explore a large selection of rare native plants, wildflowers, water lilies, familiar and unusual fruits, as well as a huge array of heirloom vegetable starts. The festival aims to introduce both novice and experienced gardeners to plants they may never have encountered before while offering them the knowledge to grow a bio-diverse garden that is both beautiful and beneficial to the world around them.

The festival features a special focus on home gardeners who want to become more self-sufficient by successfully growing a multitude of delicious and nutritious edibles to put on their tables and in their pantries. The HUDSON VALLEY SEED LIBRARY returns with an extensive selection of organic heirloom vegetable, herb and flower seedlings. These are not your usual garden variety selection of starter plants, but rather dozens of heirloom vegetables and flowers rarely grown locally.

The popular TOMATOTHON! is back featuring organically grown tomatoes and peppers that have been started early and re-potted for a robust root system. These large sturdy plants give the vegetable gardener a jump on the growing season. Over 30 varieties of heirloom and disease resistant tomatoes and peppers will be available.

The Holiday Farm & Biscuit Co. will be on-site serving coffee, pastries and sandwiches in our informal cafe.

The nursery offers over 1000 species of plants for the gardener to choose from. Meet fellow gardeners, browse the many plants, pottery, and sculpture in a beautiful setting right here in your local community.

Fee: Free and open to the public.

The Germantown Garden Club will hold its very popular Annual Plant Sale at Palatine Park, Germantown. There will be locally grown nursery-plants available for purchase. Plant selections include annual flowers, perennials, vegetables, and herbs. Due to the invasive Asian jumping worm occurrences reported in Columbia and Greene counties, we will not be contributing plants from members’ gardens this year. However, we will be offering member-grown houseplants and cuttings grown in sterile soils to prevent further broadcast of worm cocoons into gardens. Members will be on hand to answer your gardening questions as well as having information about this invasive species of worm (Amynthas agrestis).

The club will also offer a Gardening Tag Sale and a delicious Bake Sale, as well as an incredible Garden Basket raffle. Get here early, as the most desirable plants sell out fast. Funds raised at this event support the club’s Germantown High School Scholarship Fund and other important donations and projects for the town that the club provides.

Fee: Free
