Hi, Lesley –


Looking Back On a Great Plant Sale


Just a week ago, volunteers congregated at the tent to begin work on the 18th Annual Friends Plant Sale. The Arboretum staff had already delivered the knocked-down shelving, so teams began work setting them units up. Soon, whirring screwdrivers and banging boards led to dozens of shelf modules filling the tent.
