Annual LBCC Plant Sale
Open House & Plant Sale


It is that time of year again for the Long Beach City College Horticulture Department’s popular Plant Sale and Open House. The Annual Plant Sale returns after a brief hiatus last year after the Horticulture area underwent some much-needed improvements.

The sale will be held on the same day as National Public Gardens Day (May 11), where people are encouraged to walk in gardens and enjoy the plant life surroundings. Workshops and demonstrations will be presented on both days, including special guests, The Butterfly Whisperer and the Society for Calligraphy Southern California who will write out visitors’ names for free in a variety of lettering styles.

The sale will also feature metal garden art and other items created by the LBCC Fabrication/Welding Club, water-wise plants and vegetables, and butterfly-friendly plants.

An open art table will also be available for children and watercolor workshops will be held from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm each day.

Come on down to the PCC Campus south of the QQ Building and join the fun, festivities, and flora on Friday, May 11 and Saturday, May 12 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Parking will be free in all PCC parking lots. For more information, please call (562) 938-3086.
