THYME FOR KIDS ANNUAL PLANT SALE

  • When: Wednesday, April 15 through Friday, May 15 

In response to the emerging concerns about COVID-19, we've moved this year's Thyme for Kids Plant Sale online. Features a variety of plants, flowers and herbs, most items cost between $2-$8. Beginning April 15, you'll be able to view our plant list and make your selections. We'll have everything ready for your designated pickup/delivery days beginning April 24 through May 15. Stay turned for updates.

Proceeds from the sale support our Build Trybe program, a mentorship community building health and independence while empowering youth with employable skills. It is a bridge connecting youth who lack a stable support system to opportunity through 3 skill-based career paths: culinary, construction and horticulture.  

Studies show that just being in nature — such as taking a walk through a garden or park — can improve one's state of mind while lowering blood pressure, heart rate and stress. Through this program, the youth get to experience the calming effects of nature firsthand while also gaining valuable work experience. They often feel a sense of pride and accomplishment as they watch their plants flourish. As their plants and skills grow, they advance to working on landscaping and horticulture projects with community partners, which connects them to additional training and job opportunities through a network of landscaping companies.
