Support Tilth Alliance’s biggest fundraiser of the year! Our annual Edible Plant Sale features the largest selection of organically, sustainably and locally grown vegetable plant starts in the Puget Sound region. All revenue from the Edible Plant Sale will benefit Tilth Alliance’s year-round programming.

Plants offered at the Edible Plant Sale are the best varieties to grow successfully in our Pacific Northwest climate. You’ll find an amazing selection of fruits and veggies to choose from, as well as culinary herbs, edible flowers, pollinator plants, and even gardening supplies that will help maximize your harvest all year round.

Plant Lists

Plan your shopping! Review our plant lists before you arrive and create your shopping list. Note: these are plants we’ve ordered, but availability is not guaranteed. Sometimes our growers experience crop failures, plants too small to sell, etc.

Volunteer

Helping hands will be needed to make this year’s Edible Plant Sale as safe and enjoyable as possible. There will be a variety of ways to help, from plant care to shopper support. Plus, join our amazing volunteer crew and you’ll get free access to the Early Bird Sale benefits.

Early Bird Sale: Friday, May 6; 5-7 p.m.

The Early Bird Sale provides the chance to get first-pick at our selection of plant starts. Plus, it’s a fun way to support Tilth Alliance’s work building a more sustainable, healthy and equitable food future.

The Early Bird Sale is now sold out.
