Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County


The Genesee County Master Gardeners will hold their annual Spring Garden Gala from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 15 at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County office, 420 East Main St., Batavia.

This annual plant sale will be held on the front lawn and offer a variety of perennials, many of which are from the gardens of Master Gardeners. There will also be a selection of house plants. Arrive at 10 am for the best plant selection.  No early birds please.

Visit the basket auction for garden art, gift certificates and a variety of themed baskets. Gently used garden books will also be for sale. The basket auction will be held inside the CCE building so you might have to wait your turn to check it out. The basket auction drawing starts at 12:30 p.m. The organizers won’t be able to accommodate people inside during the drawing. Winners will be called the following week.

Drop off a soil sample from your garden or lawn for a free pH test.  A half-cup sample of your garden soil in a clean container is plenty. 

Master Gardener volunteers will be available to answer your gardening questions during the sale.

Proceeds from the sale benefit the educational outreach of the Genesee County Master Gardener Program.

In keeping with NYS Guidelines, occupancy limits will be observed.  Please wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines. The organizers will be collecting contact tracing information.
