Spring Garden Gala in Batavia

Date(s) - Saturday, May 20, 2023
10:00 am-1:00 pm

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County


Rain or shine, the Genesee County Master Gardeners will host their annual Spring Garden Gala from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 20, at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County, 420 East Main St., Batavia. (The plant sale starts promptly at 10 a.m.;  no early birds please.)

This annual plant sale features a variety of perennials, many of which are from the gardens of Master Gardeners. There will also be a selection of house plants.

Visit the Basket Auction for garden art, gift certificates and a variety of themed baskets. The Basket Auction drawing starts at 12:30 p.m.  Gently used garden books will also be for sale.

The garden garage sale was so popular last year, they’re doing it again. They’ll have an assortment of gently used or maybe never used gardening items such as containers, tools, signs and garden decor. This will be set up in the parking lot area near the garden shed.

Take 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 Gardeners will be available to answer your gardening questions.

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