Thanks for Making the Plant Sale a Success!

Our 2013 Plant Sale was an amazing success. Whether you helped with planning or setting up or just supported us by buying organic plants, we appreciate it!

"Thanks so very much to all of you who donated your time, dug plants, circulated advertising fliers, created poster boards, or contributed in other ways," said plant sale coordinator Nancy Carlson.
