May 20th: PLANT SALE 9am-Noon

9th Annual Fundraising Plant Sale @ Jackson Community Church: rain or shine!
Saturday May 20th

These sunny days are cajoling the greenery out of the ground and turning our thoughts to plants we can put in the ground! 
 If you are fortunate enough to have an abundance of hearty, healthy perennials that need dividing; extra seedlings started, or a healthy houseplant that needs to be re-homed, please consider donating to our sale! 
 We have pots up for grabs under the stairway at the church, and starting next week feel free to leave your donated plants under there.
We can help divide plants, or pick up items if needed.  Please identify all plants dropped off. 
ALL proceeds support displaced persons needing shelter and assistance here in the MWV and internationally. 
For questions call / text Gloria Hutchings.
