NEWPORT — The Orleans County Natural Resource Conservation District (OCNRCD) is hosting its annual plant sale.
The fundraiser is an opportunity for community members to purchase quality bareroot trees, shrubs, berry bushes, and other plants, while supporting the District’s important conservation programming.
One of the goals of the sale is to encourage individual self-sufficiency and land enhancements to private property.
New this year, customers can purchase rainbow and brook trout for stocking private ponds.
Also available are wildflower starts, grown by students in the Future Farmers of America (FFA) organization at North Country Career Center.
This NCCC student-led organization is the largest FFA organization in the USA.
FFA supports agricultural education and leadership.
Plant supplies are limited.
Orders are due by Friday, April 14, and can be placed online at the OCNRCD website at www.vacd.org/conservation-districts/orleans-county/.
Orders are picked up by customers on Saturday, May 6th at the Orleans County Fairgrounds in Barton.
