Just an FYI: We are going to have the potting party Sunday April 27th.

What's the potting party ? The potting party is a group work day that we make in to a party with food,drinks,music ,jumpy houses and activities  for the kids.When YOU can come out and help me get ready for the plant sale  by helping me: groom plants, pot them up in to bigger pots,and do other things needed to get the plants ready for the big event

This years party is about a week later then normal due to Easter Sunday.So I am really going to need a lot of help. Please consider coming, bring a friend,bring a hand trowel,garden gloves,and your favorite alcoholic beverages. I provide the food, and everything else!

The sale will kick off on Friday May 2nd. and run every Friday, Sat, Sunday in May as well as Thursday May 29th

Can't make the potting party? We could use you to volunteer to spend a few hours at the plant sale helping water plants,picking up donations of plants,or selling plants. Yo do not have to have a lot of knowledge about plants to sell the plants.  I provide detail plant descriptions that cover most basic questions,I try and pair up non experienced plant people with plant smart people.So do not worry if you are not a garden guru, we just need nice people to come spend some time with us,,is that you?! Plus you, as our volunteer will get a one day free shopping pass ( a $55.00 value ) to Costco in Avon MA and lunch at the Costco food court.

Hope to see you then!
Love The CrazyPlantLady and family
