Published 4:59 pm Sunday, March 19, 2023

The Town of Farmville will observe Arbor Day by giving away free seedlings on Saturday, March 25, at the Farmer’s Market located at 213 North St. beginning at 9 a.m. The trees being offered this year are White Dogwood, Sycamore and Persimmon.

This year, Farmers Market vendors will be participating in the Town’s Arbor Day. Some items that will be available are baked goods, fresh produce, beef, pork, chicken, eggs, soap, houseplants, pottery, coffee and canned goods. Vendors will be available from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Each year the Town is assisted by the Heart of Virginia Master Gardeners and the Boy Scouts of America. The organizations help with the packaging of the seedlings and provide information on planting and care of the young trees. Trees provide habitat for wildlife, shade and beauty to our community.
