Rockport Garden Club Plant Sale May 31
Rockport — A sure sign that summer is near is the annual Rockport Garden Club's most anticipated plant sale Saturday, May 31, from 9 a.m. to noon. at the Aldermere Farm Barn on Russell Avenue.
This popular event helps gardeners enhance their gardens through the purchase of annuals, perennials, herbs and assorted garden items, at reasonable prices. Plants are from local gardens as well as area nurseries. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the scholarship fund.
The club anticipates the same success as in past years. It's many hours of hard work , especially for co-chairwomen, Jean Nolan and Karin Weisert.
The Rockport Garden Club plants, maintains and waters 10 areas throughout Rockport as well as assists in the cleanup in several parks in town.
This year several businesses have participated in the annual sale with donations or plants, garden related items and gift certificates. The club is grateful to Barley Joe's in Warren, Seasons Downeast, Plants Unlimited, Green Thumb, Fresh off the Farm, and Rankins Hardware for their contributions to the sale, and to the many members who donate their plants and time in making this a memorable event.
