Plant Sale

file2020 Spring Plant Sale Cancelled!

In times like these all one can do is hope for the best (but plan for the worst). It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the cancellation of our plant sale this year. If you purchased plants this year, your order form and payment for the event will be mailed to the address on your order form. Please do not visit the office as it is closed to the public at this time.

Between the shelter in place order for older Americans and school cancellations, our entire plant sale volunteer workforce is mostly unavailable. The closing of school and government facilities has also removed options for a plant sale customer pick up site. Lastly, since federal officials are advising that no more than ten people gather in one place, I cannot in good conscience countenance the continuance of an event that surely will do just that.

Hopefully, we can try a Fall plant sale if issues created by the COVID 19 virus are resolved at that time. I sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this decision may cause.
