Calling all gardeners! The ever popular Blue Hill Public Library Plant Sale will take place on Saturday May 24th from 8:00 to 11:00 AM on the Library’s front lawn—light rain or shine. (extreme weather date is Sunday May 25th) Kick off the holiday weekend and start the gardening season right by browsing close to 1,000 potted perennials from local gardens, along with soft fruit canes, vegetable and flower seedlings. Bring your wish list and bring a friend, lines start forming at 7:45!
And, it isn’t just plants: The Friends of the library will host a Bake Sale of coffee and breakfast treats plus a special garden edition of their wonderful Book Sales.
Not a gardener or don’t need more plants? There are lots of wonderful items for bid in the Silent Auction. Featured items include: a gourmet farm-to-table dinner for 8, a granite bench, lunch cruise on a sailboat, fine desserts, a handmade floral quilt, terracotta pots filled with herbs, a month of local eggs, tattoos (to forever show your love of plants), massages (to ease the aches and pains of weeding), and a pile of goat manure—truly something for everyone.
All proceeds benefit the general operating fund for the Library. For more information or to volunteer contact the Library at 374-5515.
