Seedling sale team sets date for 27th annual event

Sep 14, 2021 | Author: Bonnie Marshall | Editor: Conner Tye

We are gearing up, once again, for the Linn County Small Woodlands Association’s Annual Seedling Sale.

The 27th annual event  will be Feb. 5, 2022, at the Linn County Fair andExpo Center.  Fortunately, we have a versatile range of hard-working volunteers and gears in our gear box that will help us carry on the tradition in this ever-changing COVID environment.

The outstanding success of this past year’s seedling sale was made possible with some advance planning and creative thinking from our wonderful volunteers and helped add over $10,000 to our scholarship and education fund.  Thanks to all of you that continue to support our seedling sale. Friday Feb 4 volunteers will again be in place to wrap orders in sawdust and newspaper for Saturday pickups.

While every year seems to present new challenges for our seedling sale, we work hard to provide seedlings that will work for you. We will offer our usual great seedling selection of conifer and deciduous trees and shrubs with an emphasis on native plants.  Start thinking now about your spring planting needs.

Be watching for the pre-order information packet to be sent via email in mid to late November (or snail mail for those that don’t have an email address). If you would like to be added to our email or snail mail list or volunteer to help at the seedling sale, please contact Bonnie Marshall at or 503-769-6510. The pre-order information will also be posted in early December on our recently redesigned website:

 With the new website format, we look forward to providing more up-to-date information on seedling availability and if we are sold out of an item.  While it won’t provide real time accuracy, we hope this will help reduce the number of adjustments we have had to make in previous years.

We look forward to seeing you at the seedling sale, Saturday, February 5, 2022 at the Linn County Fair and Expo Center.  Remember to pre-order early for best selection.
