What a fabulous team you are! The participation and contribution of each one of you is very valued and touches my heart. I think I have milked the sale to its final closure and we can all be very proud of producing our most successful yet. We have made $11,460 for IN SPIRIT. I am now in the process of getting plants to their new homes, whether in the ground, the greenhouse and rehab nursery, someone's garden, or in some cases, their resting place in the compost preparing for their future incarnation. We still have some flowering plants we're happy to pass along. Hope you all have a wonderful summer,
Thank You for your support and donations.
The 2011 Plant Sale - Plant & People Magic
Once again we were overjoyed with the success of the sale -- bringing in over $10,000! We marveled at the plants and other delightful donations that arrived at IN SPIRIT headquarters in Woodacre.We welcomed offerings such as hand-potted herb gardens, fabulous "color" pots by Deacons from SGV Presbyterian Church, arrangements potted in vintage tinsby Mary Chapman and Jean Kinsey, and many other shared treasures.Many local gardeners and businesses supplied our stock including John Kaufman with seedlingsfrom the local school, Dahlia Kamesar, Dale Kemp, Pam Bird, Sunnyside Nursery, United Market, Fairfax Lumber and Home Depot. Our greenhouse cared for by Amy Valens and Tomato Dan resulted in many veggie and flower seedlings, and tomatoes overflowed into Dan's Tomato Land. A truckload of irresistible garden chotskies from Don and Sita Greer made everybody cheer. Jill Tramontano offered her wonderful pottery, and Marty Meade shared beads from the Arroyo Road Bead Collective. Signage provided by Ann Jones and Cathy Calaway again simplified our final mad rush.
Our hard-working dedicated volunteers again spent days setting up and staffing the sale and made it all come together. Thank you to the hard-working team: Amy Valens, Karen Zaggalini, Carol Hodil, Nancy Nichols, Joy Kendra, Marcia Gunnarson, Cindi de Channes, Valerie Fontenot, Sabenah Elizabeth, Tenaya Wieczorek, Kelly Durrant, Kathy Perkins, Jill Tramontono, Mesa Nordbye, Erin Clark, Jamie Sheldon, Michel Kotski, and Marie Grindler.
Every donation, small and great, added to the exciting event that is the IN SPIRIT Plant Sale. As one newcomer commented, "I get it! It's a festival!" Thank you one and all. Think of IN SPIRIT if you have things to share.
