The Northern Lights Plant Sale is a fundraiser for the St. Paul School of Northern Lights Parent and Family Group. One hundred percent of proceeds from our plant sale support PUBLIC education at Northern Lights, a K–8 public charter school.

Our goal is to provide the Highland Park community with affordable, high quality plants. Retail plant prices have gone up significantly in the last 3 years. We feel charging less benefits our community and keeps gardening accessible for more people.

Day of Sale Information

Our sale is located in Highland, in the St. Paul School of Northern Lights / Talmud Torah building):

768 Hamline Ave S, St Paul, MN 55116
