    Just to let everyone know about this year's plant sale:  It will be Saturday, April 16.  Yes, that's Easter weekend, but it is the ONLY Saturday available at Portuguese Hall in March, April and May, due to Festa scheduling.  

    We will start having workshops in February, once Covid cases settle down once again (fingers crossed).  There's plenty of time for growing and creating!  Dates to be determined.  

    Workshops we are planning:  

    Non-Succulents, Succulents in pots, Succulent Dish Gardens.

     Other ideas being considered:  (Depends on interest and if there's enough donations!)

    Tillandsia Designs, Whimsical Containers with succulents

    Donations Needed

    We will let you know when to drop things off or bring with you to workshops

    6 packs of non-succulents (tomatoes, vegetables, herbs, annuals,etc.)

    Empty gallon containers (clean, please, so we don't have to clean them)


    Plumeria Cuttings

    House plants


    Whimsical Containers 

    Dishes for the Dish Gardens

    Volunteers Needed

    We will need volunteers to attend workshops

    Members to water and monitor the non-succulents

    Members to transport items for sale, set up the sale, work at the sale and help with clean up.

    We will have our Ye Olde Garden Shoppe as we still have donated items that were intended for the canceled 2020 sale.
