Flowers for mom? Snoqualmie Valley Garden Club plant sale coming up
May 7, 2012 · 1:05 PM
The annual Snoqualmie Valley Garden Club plant sale is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 19, at the Mount Si Senior Center in North Bend.
Each year, club members propagate, divide and grow plants in their yards for the sale. With a large selection of perennials, shrubs, roses, berries and small trees, the annual sale will also include a good assortment of hardy fuchsias grown by a local nursery. Several local businesses and the horticulture program at Mount Si High School have made generous donations of plants for the sale.
As in the past, the proceeds from the sale are used to fund two scholarships for graduating students of Mount Si High School. The students selected as scholarship recipients have expressed an interest in horticulture and have completed horticulture classes at Mount Si High School. Students may contact the Counseling Center at the school for information regarding scholarship application.
Last year, Garden Club members volunteered 60 hours of their time over two weekends to replant the flower beds on the west side of the Mount Si Senior Center grounds as part of the Club’s commitment to community involvement.
