Finally! Spring has arrived just in time for the annual Camden Garden Club Plants for Scholars sale. This very important fundraiser will be held during the Business is Blooming weekend on Saturday, May 16, and Sunday, May 17 under the portico in front of Allen Insurance at 34 Elm Street. The hours are 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on both days.
Camden Garden Club is celebrating its centennial year in 2015 and plant sales have been a part of its history since 1938. The club established its scholarship program in 1984, and to date over 100 students, majoring in horticulture related subjects, have benefitted. The proceeds of the plant sale provide the funds necessary to maintain this significant educational resource for the community.
All of the plants offered for sale are donated by Camden Garden Club members who will be on hand to tell you more about the club‘s activities including the upcoming House and Garden Tour on July 16, 2015. You can also visit their website www.camdengardenclub.com for more information. Camden Garden Club is a member of the Garden Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc.
