Don’t miss the two upcoming Plant Sales sponsored by LCGC member clubs Gardenside Green Thumb and Down To Earth.
Gardenside Green Thumb’s plant sale will be held on Derby Day (May 7), 8:00 am to 12:00 pm at 1915 Fort Harrods Drive. A broad selection of well-grown plants will be available, as well as Butterfly Favorites! Proceeds of the sale go to the restoration of the herb garden at Waveland State Historic Site.
Every May, the Down to Earth Garden Club holds a special plant sale community fundraiser featuring plants that are grown, nurtured and generously donated by each club member. The community benefit will be held rain or shine, featuring natives, herbs, fruits, vegetables, perennials, wildflowers, grasses, hostas, shrubs, tees, annuals, container gardens, succulents, irises, decorative containers, gardening books, and many plants for sun or shade. Money raised will be donated to local projects that promote gardening, education, preservation, conservation and environmental stewardship. This year’s sale is May 12, 2018 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at Woodland Christian Church, 530 East High Street.
