The Belfast Garden Club offers a most gracious thank you to the many donors who contributed to the club’s annual Green Thumb Plant Sale last month. This year’s event made over $4,000 in gross sales one of the most successful in Garden Club history, allowing us to continue our many civic projects, including scholarships for students pursuing degrees in biology, agriculture, horticulture, permaculture and forestry. These funds also support the Garden Club’s long-term care of many Belfast public gardens, free public education programs and garden-related books for local libraries.
A special thanks from the Belfast Garden Club to these generous local commercial donors: Bahner Farm, Carol’s Collectibles, EBS, Evergreen Valley Farm, Fernwood Nursery, Hidden Gardens, Ledgewood Gardens, Peacemeal Farm, Plants Unlimited, Roots & Shoots Nursery, and The Maine Garden — all within easy reach of the many midcoast residents who bought their plants and who are encouraged to support them throughout the growing season. And thanks to all of you who contributed your own gardens’ plants, helping bring our buyers a record number of nearly 1,000 plants from which to choose.
Finally, a sincere thanks to the midcoast community for your strong support of the Belfast Garden Club, including our annual Green Thumb Plant Sale and Open Garden Friday Tours.
