Herb Sale & Pre-order for Pick up

Saturday, May 7
10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

CT Audubon promotes planting for wildlife! Herbs are an easy way to help our pollinators (birds, bees, butterflies, moths, and other insects) and also provide food for people and birds (nectar, seeds, nuts, and insects). Some herbs are also host plants for hungry caterpillars! We are offering herb plants from Pride’s Corner and Gilbertie’s Herb Farm.

Pre-order your herbs in gallon pots for pick up on May 7 or stop by to see the selection of 4” organic potted herbs for sale that day.

Connecticut-grown, Pride’s Corner herbs are all culinary herbs that are also beneficial to pollinators!  The herbs, in gallon (#1) pots, will be pre-sold as the quantity is limited. Please note that all orders with full payment will be reserved as they are received on a first-come, first reserved basis. Each herb, in gallon (#1) pot, is sold at $15.00 (Price includes CT sales tax.). Your herbs will be reserved and labeled with your name when you come to pick them up!

There will be 4” potted organic herbs for sale on May 7th. Price at $5 each they are an excellent addition to your garden or container plantings. These herbs are sourced from Gilbertie’s Herb Farm of Connecticut.

If you can’t make it on Saturday, May 7, there may be herbs leftover for purchase on Sunday, May 8. Sunday hours are 12 – 4 p.m. You can call the center for availability of herbs to purchase. 203-878-7440.
