Thank you to those who have supported us by shopping our online plant sale with curbside pickup. So far, the online sale has been very successful! We are especially grateful for all who are shopping, as we lost the revenue of our entire spring plant sale season due to the pandemic.

We continue to care deeply about the health of our community and slowing the spread of COVID-19 is our highest priority.

It is crucial that everyone going out in public prioritizes adhering to social distancing above all else, which means skipping popular destinations, opting for more local neighborhood or less crowded areas.
