LEWISTON — After receiving many requests, Androscoggin Valley Soil and Water Conservation District (AVSWCD) has revamped, renewed and restored the annual spring plant sale that has been in retirement for a number of years.

The plants selected for this sale are coming from Skillins Greenhouses in Cumberland and have been carefully selected and have a focus on native and pollinator promoting plants. There is a wide range to choose from, including herbs, vegetable seedlings, perennials and annuals.

Proceeds go directly into programming that AVSWCD provides. The programming can vary from working with children and agriculture, promoting water quality bettering habits on the Androscoggin River and offering a variety of continuing education training for adults.

Order forms are due by Monday, April 23. All ordering information, and a guide to the plants being offered, can be found at www.androscogginswcd.org/plant-sale.html.

AVSWCD is a not-for-profit organization cooperating with land owners and operators to help protect and conserve natural resources by promoting environmental stewardship in Androscoggin and Sagadahoc counties.
