April 6, 2018 – The annual Fayette Cares Plant Sale has long been known throughout the region as one of the best places to pick up beautiful plants at great prices. You can feel good about your purchase knowing all proceeds help provide shelter for the homeless, safety from domestic violence, and stability for families in financial crisis.
