This is the third year for Crown Point's spring Organic Plant Sale, and we are delighted to once again supply high quality, certified organic plants for your home garden. This season there will be an expanded number of heirloom varieties offered. In the interest of biodiversity and in response to comments shared on the 2006 plant sale survey, we have made a choice to preserve our rich horticultural heritiage. Above and beyond heirloom selections, we will also include vegetable that are named in the The Slow Food USA's Ark of Taste.

The Ark of Taste listing seek to protect our inherited agricultural diversity. Endangered fruits and vegetables, animals breeds cured meats, cheeses, cereals, pastas, cakes and confectionery are highlighted and celebrated in an effort to rediscover the economic, social and cultural heritage of taste.  Visit www.slowfoodusa.org/ark for more information.

We have broadened the types of vegetable, herbs and flowers available in an effort tomake your garden more complete. New items included: melons, winter squash, cabbage, broccoli, kale, collards, cauliflower and radicchios.

Heirloom varieties of eggplants, peppers and tomatoes, all sizes, shapes and colors, will enhance your plant collection and eventually your dinner table.

Are you looking for a particular item or variety? Tell us. There is always the 4th Annual Organic Plant Sale!
