Heirloom Plant Sale

Buy Plants,
Fund Research

Preserve historical plants while improving the future of UW-Green Bay.

The annual heirloom plant sale is a UW-Green Bay tradition entering its 26th year. Supporters of the sale help contribute to the long-term preservation of heirloom plants, while also funding educational opportunities for UWGB students.

This year's pickup dates will be Friday, May 12th, and Saturday, May 13th, 2023. You can still browse our greenhouse and buy plants without pre-ordering them on the pickup dates.

While you wait check out the list of approximately 230 varieties and cultivars we are growing and their descriptions.

Help Preserve

One generation to another.

As vegetables have been cultivated for thousands of years, heirloom plants have become increasingly rare. Fortunately, a growing interest in personal history and gardening has led to the preservation of many of our heirloom treasures.
