This project is headed up by Elaine Miller and the Plant Sale Committee is already gearing up for this year’s sale which is on Saturday, May 28th, 2022 at Janis St. John’s Garden at 1444 #506.
On March 3rd, some of the committee members got together at Janis St. John’s house to plant basil and parsley seeds in preparation for our sale. Thanks to Janis for her hospitality and snacks and for keeping these seedlings going until we can transplant them into her new greenhouse where we can grow our own veggies from now on.
Since the March planting, Janis has been taking good care of the seedlings and Lucy, the cat, is guarding the crop!
Things are coming along nicely for the plant sale – all thanks to our dedicated crew!
In 2020, we were unable to hold the sale due to the pandemic. In 2021, Janis St. John kindly offered her gardens as a new venue and it worked out extremely well.
Getting ready for the 2021 Plant Sale!
In the Fall and Spring, we encourage our members to dig up and divide those plants that they have and pot them ready for the sale. Our members have been most generous and we are very happy to spread the plants we love throughout the gardens in our community. Our Spring Plant Sale on May 29, 2021 was a great success – thanks to our hard-working club members, as well as the support of our community!
Our Plant Sales are very popular events with lineups waiting to get in on the dot at 9:00 AM. In 2021, we had hundreds of visitors and they were still arriving as we were closing down at 5:00 PM. Our sales have increased over the years and the money we raise goes towards the costs of our many projects.
