With the move to the gymnasium at Oakland Elementary school, the 27th Annual Fayette Cares Plant Sale has grown providing more products and value to shoppers and attendees. An event for the entire family, there is something for everyone.
Quality plants will be for sale at great prices from the region’s best growers and farms. In addition to returning favorites like Dan West Garden Center, Gardens Oy Vey, Lucerne Farms, and Willow Oaks, new vendors will be participating including Fenster Farms, Midwest Block & Brick and Cooper Young Garden Walk, with a portion of garden walk tickets sales benefitting Fayette Cares. There will also be fresh baked delights & canned goods from Backermann’s Country Market and unique items from Kindred Spirit Style, and information available from the Oakland Farmer’s Market.
A special addition this year includes beautiful potted plants from the students at Oakland Elementary. Students are supporting this great cause by potting plants, with the assistance an Extension Agent from Agricenter International, in pots they decorate. These items will be available for purchase at the sale.
The Home Grown section is big this year thanks to donations from the community! Shop items like magnolia trees, crepe myrtle trees, peonies, hostas, lilies and more with 100% or proceeds benefitting Fayette Cares.
