Tips for Saving Money in Your Garden

If you live in or near Guilford County, North Carolina, here is a great tip for where to get cheap mulch and a great deal on plants. How cheap? At the Guilford County Cooperative Extension, you can buy 48 plants for $12. For $12 at others stores, you would get just 18 of those same plants

The extension office is located at 3309 Burlington Road, Greensboro, NC. The phone number for the office is 336-375-5876.

The farm is located on 7315 Howerton Road in Gibsonville.

If you want to buy some local produce, the farm is open 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. But hurry! After 80 years, the government is considering closing it down. We don’t want that to happen!

  1. That’s it, I’m coming over and we’re going shopping (plus I’m bringing a baggie full of my garden dirt for free testing). Here you’d be lucky to get 3 plants for $12.

    I’m trying to get by with planting seeds as much as possible because honestly, paying $4.50 for a small veggie plant doesn’t produce much of a savings in your grocery budget.

    You’re so lucky, take advantage of everything GCC has to offer!

    Ahhhh, the cost of living down under.

    We hope to go shop there tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted! I, actually, have room for nothing other than herbs now..

    Hi Brittney:

    The farm is located on 7315 Howerton Road in Gibsonville.

    If you want to buy some local produce, the farm is open 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    After being open 80 years, the local government is considering shutting it down! Go out there and see how great it is. I don’t want it to close!
