Tractor Supply invites youth to Plant-A-Seed event

DOVER-FOXCROFT — The Dover-Foxcroft Tractor Supply store is inviting young gardeners to its Plant-A-Seed event for a free opportunity to learn the basics of gardening with a hands-on activity.

On Saturday, May 27 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. young customers can visit the store to plant a perennial butterfly garden, while supplies last. A team member will be available to guide the children in the activity and explain the best ways to nurture and care for their future garden. 

Once complete, participants can take their seeds home to monitor their growth and watch them attract butterflies as they flourish. Team members will be available to answer future questions and provide advice to these young gardeners. 

In addition to the gardening activity, attendees will also have the opportunity to enjoy pet clinics, a coloring contest, games and vaccinations. 

“At Tractor Supply, our mission is to educate and inspire our younger customers through interactive learning experiences,” said Dover-Foxcroft Store Manager George Goomishian. “We recognize the time and energy that goes into cultivating plant life, and we want to share our knowledge with this younger generation as they begin to discover their own interests and hobbies.”

The Plant-A-Seed event will take place at 1073 West Main Street Suite 1. For further information or questions, please contact the Dover-Foxcroft store at 207-564-6590.
