Summer Plant Sale

By Liz Mitchell
Vegetables, flowers and herbs will be available at the Summer Plant Sale on Saturday, June 6 from 10:00am to 2:00pm at Holy Comforter Church. Flowering annuals and perennials will be available. Vegetables that still have time to produce a crop will be ready to buy and put in the ground.
The plants are grown from seed in the greenhouse on the west side of the church. They are planted and nurtured by several participants in the Friendship Center. The Friendship Center, a ministry of the Holy Comforter Church, helps adults with life challenges. The gardening program includes a supported employment program, and the employed gardeners are paid for their work. Other participants in the Friendship Center help out on occasion, and there are a few volunteers from the community too. All the money earned from the Plant Sale go back into supporting the Friendship Center and the gardening program.
Holy Comforter Church is located at 737 Woodland Avenue. Besides this plant sale, there will be two plant sales in the fall: September 19 and October 10.
