We’ve hit the refresh button yet again on our renowned event and we think you’re going to love it!

THE Plant Sale 2019 will kick off on Wednesday, May 1st from 6:00 – 9:00 PM with the 2nd Annual Building Community Award event. We’re going to catch our breath on Thursday (oh, and get thousands of plants ready for all of YOU!). Then Friday, May 3rd from 5:30 – 8:30 PM we’re throwing another Happy Planet Happy Hour complete with first dibs on plants and plenty of good food and drink. Saturday, May 4th from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM is our free and open to the General Public Sale. (Once again, since pigs really do fly in Cincinnati, we’ll let them have the run of the city during the Flying Pig Marathon on Sunday!)

Full Schedule:


  • Announcing awardees in early 2019 in the areas of gardening, education and environmental stewardship.
  • Dinner, drinks, live music, and the works as we honor and celebrate some people who’ve been really good for the planet.
  • Limited selection of plants will be available that night. But we hope to entice you to come back on Friday and/or Saturday!
