LCS Plant Sale


Thank you for coming to the 2023 Plant Sale! This year we sold nearly 7,500 plants; which was $17,098 in profit for Lake Country School. The Plant Sale will return in May 2024; we’ll see you there!


What is the Lake Country School Plant Sale?

The LCS Plant Sale is a parent-driven fundraiser and community-building event that takes place every spring. All proceeds directly benefit Lake Country School.


When is the next Plant Sale?

Thursday, May 9, and Friday, May 10, 2024


Where does the plant Sale take place?

During the second week of May, the LCS parking lot will transform into a sea of colors lined with plants, vegetables, and flowers of all kinds. 


What is offered at the Plant Sale?

We offer a variety of plants and flowers native to Minnesota, annuals, perennials, and hanging baskets grown by Glacial Ridge. We also source organically grown Land School vegetables, herbs, and flowers planted from seed and cared for by the Land School staff and LCS students throughout the growing cycle.


How do I purchase my plants?

The best way to ensure yourself the widest selection of plants is to place a pre-order through the Plant Sale Marketplace. Pre-orders will take place from early March through the first week of May and will be available for pick-up on the Thursday and Friday of the sale. After all pre-orders are complete, the remaining plants will be available for purchase in person.


Who can buy plants from Lake Country School?

Everyone! In late February, we send a postcard to all current parents, alumni, neighbors, and friends of LCS announcing the sale. We encourage you to spread the word about our Plant Sale to anyone you think might be interested.


How can I get involved?

Volunteer opportunities, from filling pre-orders to unloading plants and organizing the parking lot, are available throughout the week of the sale. Mark your calendars for spring 2024; it’s a fantastic opportunity to do big work with other LCS families.
