Why a Plant sale for a hospital some people ask??... Because it's a way to spread HOPE for the kids that Children's Hospital Boston serves,and the joy of gardening rewards all the people kind enough to donate to the cause. It's a great win win partnership where the giver gets as much as the receiver!

The Plant sale May 2010 raised $10,500.00. Goal is to raise $20,000 in 2011.

I am asking for your support in donating:
