Since we're complying all these right now, I might as well add that there will be a plant sale at Fairhaven Middle School on May 1st from 12:30 - 3 in the lower soccer field.  Plants will be very affordable!  All proceeds from the sale will benefit the school garden!

One more to add:  The Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship's Plant Sale will also be on May 7th - 9 am to 2 pm.  We feature bare root native plants in addition to perennials, herbs, houseplants, etc.

Please let me know if you have extra space in your car and you're going out to any of these farther away plant sales.  I do not drive, so am limited to how far I can travel in a short amount of time.  Thanks! :)

I have the Everson Garden Club Plant Sale being April 30 this year. I'll call Carol one of the organizers and confirm the date. Also the Lummi Island Civic Club is having their plant sale April 30th at the LI Grange.

I have a lovage plant that is in need of dividing soon (within the next month before it gets too big to manage). Let me know if you would like a portion. I only want to keep 1/4 of it.
Comment by Anna Luna on March 16, 2011 at 1:03pm
I just moved into a new house with a big front yard and I could really use some help getting it going.  Is anyone interested in exchanging some help for a garden plot in the York district???  Contact me if so :0)
