BYOB (bring your own bag or box)

Payment will be by cash or check.

We want to keep it simple and safe.

The plants will be dug from the beds at the time of the sale.  We will also have many plants brought in by members that will also be available for sale.  Bring your own spade or shovel if you wish to help dig up your chosen plant.

If you have plants to donate, please bring them to the holding beds in plant pots, bags or boxes before the sale. Water them well as it is likely to be a warm, dry week.  Adding a name to the plant is always helpful, as is adding its color, light requirement, etc. if you have this information.

(Bring your own shovel and a bag or box to put plants in. We also have some volunteers who can help dig. The price is right - only $5 for a large clump!)

The Art of Ikebana

Speaker: Kaye Vosburgh

Kaye will introduce Sogetsu Ikebana with a lesson for beginners, followed by freestyle arrangements that are creative and express the artists’ ideas. The Sogetsu School was the first to break away from the traditional rule driven arrangements. Love of plant material and nature is still a central theme. Kaye is a Sogetsu Ikebana teacher of the highest rank.
