Kids Seedling Day at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market

April 22, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Come join the Carrboro Farmers’ Market (CFM) for Kids Seedling Day on Saturday, April 22nd! Kids can celebrate Earth Day and start their gardens with a free tomato seedling donated by CFM farmers with potting soil and growing tips from the event’s sponsor, Fifth Season Gardening Company in Carrboro. 

From 8:30am until they run out, the CFM will give away tomato seedlings to kids. Kids will get to pick a seedling of their choice and plant it in a cup with potting soil provided by Fifth Season Gardening Company. Kids can also decorate a label for their seedling, then write a thank-you card to the farmer that donated it. Fifth Season Gardening will also be raffling off a special prize! 

Join Carrboro’s Poet Laureate and Members of the Poets Council for a special Earth Day poetry activity too! Help us write a community poem about kids’ favorite things about the earth and the CFM.

Kids Seedling Day is also supported by the CFM’s Big Beef Sponsor, Laser Image Printing & Marketing.

The CFM is open Saturdays year-round (7am-12pm April-October and 9am-12pm November-March) and Wednesdays seasonally (3-6pm April-mid November) at Carrboro Town Commons.
