Plant Sales

The Betty and Jacob Friedman Holistic Garden holds several regular plant sales each year, including a Fall Plant Sale of cool-season vegetables and herbs, a Spring Plant Sale of warm-season vegetables and herbs, and a Songbird and Pollinator Plant Sale of pollinator plants, many of which are native to the region.

The goal of our Fall and Spring vegetable plant sales is to sell high-quality organic produce to the Rice community and to be a resource for our community members as they learn how to grow and harvest their own produce at home.


The Betty and Jacob Friedman Holistic Garden is pleased to announce our annual Spring Plant Sale, featuring a diverse selection of tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, and assorted herbs. This year, we are also offering a number of ornamentals, including cosmos and zinnias.

Please see below to see when the garden will be open so you can stop by and purchase a variety of spring vegetables and herbs. March 25th-31st is the last week for our spring plant sale! Come by and take advantage of our great clearance prices!
