St. Helens Garden Club to hold plant sale Saturday
Looking for plants or fertilizer to kick off your spring gardening?
The St. Helens Garden Club hopes to see you this coming Saturday, May 7, at its annual spring plant sale.
The club is selling plants on the porch of the St. Helens Public Library, in conjunction with the Friends of the St. Helens Public Library's regular book sale.
Organizer Lynn Chiotti describes the plant sale as "the big fundraiser" for the St. Helens Garden Club. Proceeds go toward scholarships, projects and other charitable works.
Among other projects, the St. Helens Garden Club works to maintain and support:
• The entrance to McCormick Park
• The Blue Star marker at McCormick Park's veterans memorial
• Triangle Park (where Columbia Boulevard and St. Helens Street converge)
• Columbia City Veterans Park
• The Floral Building at the Columbia County Fairgrounds
• The Caples House Museum in Columbia City
• The garden at the St. Helens Senior Center
This year, the club will be selling bags of Rocky Point Stables horse compost for $4 apiece. Chiotti describes this as "the best compost for your tomatoes and roses."
The sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Membership applications will also be available.
