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

The annual heirloom plant sale is a UW-Green Bay tradition entering its 25th year. Supporters of the sale help contribute to the long-term preservation of heirloom plants, while also funding educational opportunities for UWGB students. Check out the list of approximately 220 varieties and cultivars we are growing and their descriptions.

As of Wednesday April 20th the shop is now open to those in the UW-Green Bay community with a login. The shop will be open to the general public starting Wednesday April 27th and will close Sunday May 8th to give us time to assemble the orders.  

Plant pickup only will be available Friday May 13th, 2022. Pickup and browsing of the remaining inventory will be Saturday May 14th, 2022. We hope to see you there!

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.
