The Friends School Plant Sale—with more than 2,500 varieties of plants, 1,300 volunteers and 20,000 customers packing the State Fair Grandstand Building—is the biggest plant sale in Minnesota and possibly the whole country. We stock a full line of annuals, perennials, climbing plants, native wildflowers, and vegetables, with selected water plants, roses, and trees and shrubs.
Our students actively participate in planning and running the event
Thenext sale dates are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 8-10, 2020.
Volunteers — We Couldn’t Do It Without You
Entirely volunteer-run, the Friends School Plant Sale has become a Twin Cities institution with loyal fans. You can become a volunteer (which gives the added incentive of being able to shop at the pre-sale Thursday event).
