The Greenhouse Project's 13th annual Mother's Day Plant Sale will be held May 7. "This year we're having an open house so that the community can see what we've been up to the past two years with the addition of the outdoor classroom and the new Native Plant Nursery & Composting at Green Central," said Karen Abowd, TGP president and co-founder. "We're also adding a raffle, food trucks, face painting and a Build Your Own Basket for Mom option. "After the last two years, we thought the community would enjoy a special way to celebrate mom and spring." In addition to being able to shop in person at TGP's Green Central location on the Carson High campus on Saturday, May 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., pre-orders for warm season plants can be made on TGP's Shopify, April 30 through May 6, and picked up the day of the sale or after May 7, during scheduled pickup times. Select from a wide variety of healthy, acclimated plants including tomatoes, peppers, petunias, milkweed, perennials, herbs and much more. Cold weather plants are currently available at TGP's Shopify. Check daily for new additions. Visit the Shopify site and shop for plants that are appropriate for spring planting now and pick them up at our Green Central location, www.ccgreenhouseproject.myshopify.com. New plants will be added to the inventory as they come available. The raffle includes an array of prizes, including his and her fat tire decorated bikes, a painting by Karen Abowd, jewelry creations by Vicki Crabb, wine caddy with corkscrew, glasses and wine, courtesy of Cory and Linda King and a handmade garden-themed quilted wall hanging by Cheryl Rotter. Tickets cost $5 each or five for $20. There is a “Build Your Own Basket” for mom option with garden aprons, gloves, cards, ribbons, seeds, and plants. Cost starts at $20. The Boba Babes and Panchos food truck will also be serving food, and there will be face painting. This event is a major part of The Greenhouse Project's fundraising to help provide produce to the food insecure in the community.
