I am a Master Gardener, in Jackson County, Texas, working under the Extension Service of Texas A&M University. Our big fund raisers are (no surprise, here!) Plant Sales! We have 2 of them a year, and raise enough money to allow us to do the projects we agree to do, give a scholarship to a local kid going off to college, and fund our Educational programs. We have a great time doing these plant sales, and of course, we all buy a lot of plants, too.
Our Fall Sale was September 19, and it was a fantastic success! My hat is off to all the MGs who worked so hard on this sale.
This was taken as we were setting up the plants the day prior to the sale. We had a lot of exotic tropicals in this sale.
Below is what it looked like when we opened the doors.This is a large auditorium, a very large room, and it was FULL of plants! That picture of a pretty flower there is the label on a Hawaiian Sunset Vine. Gorgeous!
It kind of looked like a jungle in there.
We sold out by noon.
