All are welcome. The plant sale has been a tradition of the club for decades. Many of the club’s members grow many of the plants from seeds in their own greenhouses and backyards. The sale is unique in many ways, as the club’s 30 members are available to share their knowledge and experience of growing these plants. All plants are reasonably priced, and proceeds from the sale are given to local groups such as Florida Trail Association, Ed Yarborough Nature Center and other environmental related organizations, as well as the local library.
