Plant Sale Saturday, August 20th, 1pm to 4pm
If you love plants, join us on Saturday, August 20th as we host our first plant sale! We're inviting plant vendors from the community to come and sell houseplants, vegetables, starters, rare plants, and anything to put into our gardens. (Because one can never have too many plants!)
If you would like to sell plants, for $35 you can rent a 6-foot table and two chairs. Bring plants to sell to our audience, and you keep all the profits! It's a great event to help our garden club raise funds for our gardening projects slated for the Fall. For any questions, please email email@example.com or call 808-923-1802 and ask for Mary.
