RIWPS June Sale – Great Plants, Great People, Great Weather

So many thanks.  Best Native Plant Sale in RI on June 8 enjoyed perfect weather, good looking plants and enthusiastic seekers of native plants.  Check out the pictures!  Over 4,000 native plants have been sold so far this year and we will have more plants at our fall sale on Saturday August 24th at the Pawtuxet Valley Farmer’s Market in Cranston.  We will have many late summer flowering plants and some shrubs.

We have many people to thank for our success – the many volunteers who donate their time on the May and June sale dates to help customers.  They are the face of the organization.  There are many volunteers for setting up and taking down all the equipment used at the sale – tents, tables, chairs and those who help transport plants to the sale.  There are many more people behind the scenes – the seed starters groups east and west.  Our at home propagators donate hundreds of plants.  Volunteers who work together to print off the plant labels, work on the plant signs.   There are nearly 100 volunteers who give their time to make our yearly sales not only a financial gain that we use to support our work and programs but also to fulfill our mission to make native plants affordable and available to be put into gardens all across the state.

Thank you to all!
