A Message From Nancy Carlson, Plant Sale Organizer

I sincerely thank you to all who signed up to help, and thank you to all of the people who responded when we asked for additional volunteers. Thanks to all of you, we were able to have the tables set up and ready to go well before 9 am and the checkout line was kept to a minimum all day.

The entire sale went very smoothly. Every one's help was greatly appreciated. It's nice to know that the community supports what we are doing, and that we can offer them such a nice array of organic plants and good service. My only disappointment was that we ran out of plants! I hope that everyone was able to get all of the plants they wanted, and I hope that everyone had fun!!!
