6/15 Green Plant Sale


The Plant Sale is coming. Details below--hope to see you there!


Calling all garden members--Volunteers needed

We can definitely use your help making the Plant Sale both fun and profitable for the garden.
The following message is from Jessica regarding the garden plant sale.  Please reach out to her if you have any questions (bklyn.nighthawk@gmail.com) or sign up directly in the spot below.  


As you know, the Plant Sale is one of the major fund-raising events for the garden.  But, it's also really a lot of fun for everyone who helps out.  You'll get to talk with friends and neighbors who are visiting the garden, get to play with lots of cool plants and get to feel really good about helping raise some moooolah to cover garden expenses.
The Plant Sale will be on two weekends:
Saturday, May 7th & Sunday May 8th (Mother's Day)  from 11-3
Saturday, May 14th (during the Spring Festival) & Sunday May 15th from 11-3
We really need some help during each of those days and during setup and breakdown time.
Here's a link to a Google chart with all the time slots for the Sale Days:

You should be able to enter your info right into the chart.

Please consider lending a hand, even if it's only for an hour or so (well, you know that the more time you can spare, the better, though).  We need several folks to pitch in for each time shift.
We really need YOU to make this a great success!
Thanks, everyone!

Getting Ready for the Plant Sale

It was a beautiful day at the garden on Sunday and a perfect day to start preparing for the upcoming plant sale.  I found Ramona working hard potting plants and snapped a few pictures for the blog (including one with a very special guest--my daughter Diora!).  The team already has several great plants ready to go!  Thanks for the hard work.

Cherry Blossoms


I stopped by the garden recently and our cherry tree was in full bloom--it was an absolutely perfect day for the tree.  Good thing I took this photo--when I was at the garden on Sunday, all the blossoms were already gone.  Just a reminder of how beautiful--and fast--spring tends to be.
