Used Gardening Books? Give the Gift of Knowledge

Each year, Minnesota landscaping professionals, including many horticulture students, attend the Northern Green Expo, put on by our friends at the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association. This year, the hort society is planning to sell used gardening books at the expo. Sold at very reasonable prices, the books will help students and professionals build their libraries of reference materials and be a fundraiser to support hort society programs.

Can you help us? We’re looking for gently used gardening books, particularly reference guides. Books that are less than five years old are especially welcome, but classic references on plants, design or garden care are always useful.used gardening books in pile

To donate, call the hort society at 651-643-3601 to set up a time to bring your books in. Our office in Roseville is located at 1935 County Rd. B2W (just west of Rosedale Mall), Suite 125. Our office hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, the office will be closed for the holidays,  Dec. 24-31, reopening on Monday, Jan. 3.

We will be accepting books from now through Dec. 23 and from Jan. 3 to Jan. 6.

Thank you for sharing your used gardening books with us!
