potting party
Replanting young vegetable seadlings to separate pots, in spring

Club members work year round to grow, dig, divide, pot and plant-sit plants to raise funds for our grants and scholarship program and to provide quality plants at great prices for our members and the whole community.  Most plants come from a series of “potting parties” held in the fall and spring.  Sometimes these digs also help gardeners in our community by thinning overgrown gardens. Volunteers usually get a free plant at digs!

It is time to start digging and potting for our 2017 Evening Garden Club Plant Sale!

We encourage you to sign up on a specific date to bring your plants in or to schedule a dig in your (neighbor’s, friend’s, mom’s) yard.

Wednesday, October 12
Thursday, October 20
Tuesday, October 25
Saturday, November 5

Noon to 5 pm at The Giving Garden
Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran, 2650 NE Highland, Corvallis

Why help?

It makes you feel good, you learn a lot, you make friends, you score great plants, get some exercise and most of all — it’s FUN!
If you’d like to donate plant material, we have pots and soil and a team ready to work.  We can make arrangements to dig as well. For Fall 2016 we’ll start scheduling in September to dig and pot in October and November; Spring 2017 digging and potting in March.

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant. Robert Louis Stevenson
