The FSMN Plant Sale

The Plant Sale: A Fundraiser that Aligns with Our Values

When we founded Friends School of Minnesota, we asked ourselves, “What is one way we can spread peace?” The answer? Plant a garden. Our annual Mother’s Day weekend plant sale is not only our biggest fundraiser but also actively promotes our core values of peace and environmental stewardship.

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.

  • The next 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).
To be added to the Friends School Plant Sale mailing list for next year, please email us.
