Plant Sale Event - The Day Of
Six monhs of planning, proagation, and execution culminates in this one-day event. The sale includes a diverse varety of ornamental and edible plants that have been cultivated and donated by Club membrs.
The Island community enthusiastically supports the sale through attendance and purchases each year. Money raised through the sale accounts for 70 percent of the Club's income and helps fund the Club's community work
Plant Sale Event - May 2020
This years unusual circumstances (with Covid-19, Gov Inslee's Stay At Home proclamation, and CDC's Safe Distancing recommendations) created new challenges for our member volunteers and board members.
How can we hold our beloved Plant Sale and fund raising event without group gathering in preparing plants and setting up our one day event? Plant donations and the greenhouse plants would not wait for a new future date. Spring planting and preparing the garden beds need planning done early.
So we turned our vision to what seemed like a giant leap - - maybe we could do an "On-Line Plant Sale". What seemed a "maybe" became a "we can".
Being mostly garden enthusiast, we scaled back on our scope. What was in the past, a very 'all come' public sale, become a sale to members only buying for friends and family. Managing the logistic's for picking up plants in 2 different destinations required careful planning, team work, and co-ordination.
Our 'On-Line Plant Sale went live at 8 am on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 and closed down completely May 10, 2020
We are sad that we could not include our Island community this year. Vashon-Maury Island Garden Club would like to thank our Island community for the many years of support of our annual plant sale. We thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you all in the future.
