PLANT SALES: Three West Seattle benefits this Saturday

You raise the plants, they raise the money! Three benefit plant sales are happening this weekend:

SOLSTICE PARK: The gardeners from the P-Patch at this park across from the north end of Lincoln Park are hosting their spring plant sale this Saturday (May 15th), 10 am-3 pm:

The sale supports basic maintenance needs of the garden and most importantly funds our Giving Garden. The Giving Garden provides fresh produce for the West Seattle Food Bank. Last year the Giving Garden produced 999 lbs of vegetables, and combined with 255 lbs of produce from individual plots, the Solstice P-Patch gave 1,254 lbs. Last year we were unable to hold our spring sale, which is our largest fundraising event of the year. This is a great way to find great veggie starts and interesting plants for your garden.

Look for the sellers by the tennis courts at 7400 Fauntleroy Way SW.

FURRY FACES FOUNDATION: For the first time in six years, this group that helps pets and their people is hosting one of their legendary plant sales:

After a 5-year hiatus, Furry Faces Foundation Plant Sales are back! Always great plants. Always great fun. Always for a great cause…keeping pets and people together.

Perennials, Annuals, Edibles, including Tomato Plants and Veggies, Sedums and Succulents, Black Mondo Grass, drought tolerant plants, shrubs, and more. Most 2.5″ and gallon size plants are priced from $3 – $10, with all proceeds directly supporting our mission of Keeping Pets & People Together.

Tim Scallon, Furry Faces Foundation’s Official Musician, will be performing on Saturday afternoon. Come by, shop our plants, then relax and enjoy Tim’s captivating music. You might want to bring a folding chair if you plan on staying for awhile to listen to Tim and visit with fellow plant lovers.

The Furry Faces sale is set for 11 am-4 pm Saturday at 3809 46th Ave SW.

LUNG FORCE FUNDRAISER: Amy’s extended her benefit sale (which launched last Saturday), adding 9 am-3 pm this Saturaay to raise money for the American Lung Association via her Sue’s Crew Lung Force Walk Seattle team. Sue’s her mom, a two-time lung-cancer survivor. 9 am-3 pm at 3703 SW 107th.

      Thank you helpermonkey!  We have missed holding them!  We are looking forward to seeing all of you tomorrow! And excited that there are three fundraiser plants sales on the same day.  The more, the better for our community!Our plants come from generous people who have divided plants in their yards, plus seeds, cuttings, and plug material.  We are very appreciative of all that donate plants ‘n their time, plus those that shop our sales.Please know all of our tomatoes and veggies are raised by seed utilizing organic product and methods.

        I’m assuming cash only? or will other payment methods be accepted?

          Thanks for asking!  Linda, Furry Faces treasurer here.  While we are always ready to accept cash, Furry Faces is set up for contactless payment for our plant sale (and our future fund raisers).  This means you will be the only one handling your debit or credit card.  The Square application we use to process payments may ask for a signature, you have the option to decline or sign on the smartphone being used.  If you sign, we will be sure to disinfect our phones after each use.  We want everyone to be safe while having fun finding plants and raising money for Furry Faces.

      So agree! And we have been missing live music too!  Glad it will be Tim who will be our first show now that things are getting back to normal! Karen and Robert

    Important point! The Solstice Plant Sale are plants started by our group, not resale! Organic plants and varieties not found in nurseries or stores.

Sorry, comment time is over.
