Conservation Sales Program
Spring Plant Fundraiser
What to do with so much snow on the ground? Start planning your summer garden!
This year we are offering a mixture of old favorites as well as exciting new varieties of trees, shrubs, fruit trees, small fruits, plant packages, composting items, bulbs, and NH grown plants. Whether you are looking for a new variety for a sunny or shady spot in your yard, thinking about adding a new color to your current perennials, or interested in adding vegetation to benefit wildlife, the Merrimack County Conservation District has what you need for a wonderful summer landscape!
Priority ordering with payment is due by Friday, March 20th. We will continue to accept orders after this date but not all items will be available. Pick up will be the first May 1st from 4-7 PM and May 2nd at 9am - noon at Carter Hill Orchards, Concord, NH.

This year we give a special thanks to the NH Wildlife Federation who has generously subsidized our "Wildlife Package" offering. A package of 50 plants that will attract native wildlife, valued at $200 is offered for $160. You can find more information about this package in the tree and shrub description sheet.
We will be packing plants the last week of April at Carter Hill Orchards in Concord. If you would like to help with this endeavor, please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 223-6023 about volunteering!
