Fundraiser plant sale
May 8 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Hi friends!

Our fifth annual plant sale fundraiser is Saturday, May 8th, from 9-3ish to raise money for our #LFWalkSeattle team!

We will still be following strict social distancing guidelines. Only 3-4 people will be allowed in the driveway at a time. Masks are required, vaccinated or not. Also encouraging cashless payment options if at all possible (Venmo, Paypal, ca$h, etc.)

Plant prices vary based on plant variety and size, but all bareroot dahlias are only $5/each this year!! Some quantities are quite limited. In addition to dahlias, we have strawberries, forsythia, ferns, geranium, columbine, daylilies, irises, heuchera, bergenia, snowballs, groundcovers, succulents, houseplants, and more!

Also, special guests Winfield Designs will be on site with some of their beautiful metal art, and they will donate a percentage of sales to our team! Check out their Etsy site for a sampling of their work: https://etsy.me/1mEuxh8

Pre-order (with pre-pay), and local (WS/Burien) delivery available for a small fee.

PS – can’t come but still want to donate? Visit my Lung Force Seattle page to contribute there! http://action.lung.org/goto/Amy2021
