2nd Annual Plant Sale an Amazing Success!

— by Shannon Middleton

And sales were swift. Plants sold so quickly there was talk among volunteers staffing the event that the sale, which started at 9am and was supposed to run until 3pm, might be over by noon. Half of the plants 600 plants were sold within the first 90 minutes.

A benefit for the Ocean Shores Food Bank, the plant sale generated $8,159 and $6,895 was raised in donations, according to Sandy Harley, Executive Director of the food bank.

Volunteers from the food bank worked tirelessly to organize the sale. They contributed 350 plants, some of which they grew themselves, and handmade some of the yard art that was available for purchase. The selection of plants included everything from hanging baskets of bright fuchsias, to herb and veggie starts. Ever popular succulents made up a large and interesting portion of the sale, too. Truly, there was something for every gardener.

A Master Gardener was available on site to answer questions and was constantly surrounded by eager listeners. Her presence was certainly an added bounce to the sale.

In case you missed the sale, or just want more, unsold plants are still available at Ocean Sunset Drug.
