Inspired by Lobelia Commons’ Decentralized Nursery in the great city of New Orleans, we’re encouraging Peekskill gardeners with seedlings to spare to create their own pop-up micro-nurseries throughout the city. It’s simple!
- When planning your garden, plant extra starters or buy a few extra seedlings from the nursery.
- Get a small display set up (a table, shelving system, ladder, etc.) somewhere accessible on your property – or a public space you’ve gotten permission from.
- Place a sign near the nursery that says ‘FREE’ – you can use this template or make your own.
- Let people know! Share the location, hours, and types of plants available on social media. Or, shoot us an email and we’ll add your pop-up nursery to our map.
Plan your nursery to be open in mid- to late May, when the gardening season really gets going and people are looking for plants. Keep them watered in a nice sunny spot and watch as they get snatched up!
