Cascade Cuts Nursery
632 Montgomery Road, Bellingham
Cascade Cuts, a large organic wholesale nursery, opens to the public one day a year for a Sustainable Connections Food & Farming Program fundraiser on May 18th. Get your garden going, reinvigorate your yard, and spruce up your front porch with an amazing array of flowers and plants – and all for a good cause! All proceeds go to support our farmer trainer programs, like Food To Bank On.
A prime destination for gardeners, landscapers, and anyone looking for a lovely hanging basket, the Cascade Cuts Plant Sale offers a treasure trove of plants and gardening essentials, including perennials, annuals, and herbs. Tucked in the 12 greenhouses and many outside growing areas are intriguing oddities including coffee trees, hops, compost tea machines, and unusual herbs. Lining walkways and packing greenhouses are:
- colorful ornamentals
- veggie starts (From Joe’s Gardens)
- lupines, bidens, and nasturtiums for the pollinators
- dozens of varieties of lavender
- basil, and other culinary herbs
- landscaping favorites
- annuals & perennials of all kinds
- decorative pots
- and of course flowers, flowers, and more flowers!
Win A Stay On A Local Farm
This year Full Bloom Farm, on Lummi Island, has donated a two-night offseason stay in their gorgeous Airbnb cottage to help raise even more for beginning farmer training! The cottage sleeps two in the main bedroom with luxurious, extra thick queen-sized bed, cotton linens, down duvet and full library wall filled with books. The bedroom also has a nice desk area for peaceful study or work. The kitchen was designed with a chef in mind with a 4 burner gas Viking stove, a super efficient dishwasher, big refrigerator, and microwave, as well as a coffeemaker, food processor, and blender. China and cooking utensils enough for a crowd.
