Plant sale planned for Camrose

April 17, 2017 by  

The Camrose Historic Railway Station and Park will soon be opening its doors to the public for another season, and one of the activities on the agenda for the spring is a plant sale and swap.

Gardeners from across the city are invited to make themselves present and browse through the variety of plants that will be available for purchase. They will be sourced from both the station’s organic gardens and also from donations from community members with a green thumb. The White Elephant shop will also be open for business, so guests can enjoy looking there for a hidden treasure. Carrot cake and other refreshments will be available, and one of the facility’s gardeners will be happy to answer questions from the crowd.

The station has issued a request to the area for people to donate plants and gardening items for the gift shop, and these will help it to reach its fundraising goal. They can be dropped off before the sale. A printer can supply events like this with branded labels for the plants and other products that can help to make it success.

This fundraiser, which will also help to keep local gardens looking great, has been planned for Saturday, May 27th, starting at 10:00 am. Additional details can be found on the Canadian Northern Society’s website.
