Fall Plant Sale

"Planting Roots for a Bright Tomorrow" was our theme. If you shopped on Saturday and went home and planted your purchases then Sunday's rain watered them nicely!!!

A very BIG thank you to everyone who attended this year's Fall Plant Sale. The shoppers, vendors, music, volunteers, and garden staff all helped make the weekend a success even with the Sunday rain! We even opened for several hours on Monday for those who did not venture out in Sunday's rain. The support from the community, volunteers and staff truly made this a wonderful event!!! Thank you to everyone who had a part in the sale.

Sincerely, Teresa Lee and Meredith Kilby
