It’s one of the best outdoor community events of the year for anyone with a bit of a green thumb.
The 21st annual Gwynne Vaughan Plant Sale and Garden Party is June 2 starting at 9 a.m.
It’s so much more than just a plant sale and fundraiser for the Gwynne Vaughan Park Society, although it has performed that function for more than two decades.
It’s also a late-spring garden party that many people anticipate every year for the fun, fellowship and the flowers.
There is always live music, food vendors, strawberry tea, and the most diverse plants, arts and crafts that you can find anywhere.
Vistors find warm camaraderie and a relaxed vibe at the event that attracts hundreds if not thousands to the park setting.
There are also beautiful and unique plant-related items up for bid in the silent auction which raises funds to offset the cost of maintaining the property.
Garden newbies can consult master gardeners sitting at a central booth, often with their reference tomes at the ready, for expert info on garden-related topics.
The Rotary Train is a bonus for families, and all the activities make for a super-fun day at the lovely Gwynne Vaughan park at the corner of Hope River Road and Williams Road. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
