Reminder: UW-Green Bay Heirloom Veggie Pre-sale May 12

UW-Green Bay’s annual Heirloom Vegetable Sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 13, 2017 in the greenhouse of the Laboratory Sciences building. UW-Green Bay faculty and staff have an opportunity to shop at the pre-sale from noon to 5 p.m. Friday, May 12. If possible, bring containers to carry your plants. More than 150 varieties of transplant-sized heirloom peppers, tomatoes, amaranths, eggplants, cucumbers, flowers, greens and herbs will be for sale. All money raised supports student research in the sciences at UW-Green Bay. Numbers for a line will be handed out beginning about 7:30 a.m. (possibly earlier). Most plants are priced between $1.75 and $3 (tax included). Cash or checks only. Also, Associate Prof. Steve Meyer (Natural and Applied Sciences) will have his salsa available for sampling. Come and taste-test the salsa, take a jar or two home and consider donating to the memorial scholarship established to honor the memory of student Katie Hemauer.
