Organic Seedlings Sale
9:00 AM to Noon, May 8th, 2021
First Congregational UCC Elmhurst
If you preordered organic seedlings, you will be able to pick them up on Saturday, May 8th between 9:00 and noon. Seedlings, compost and growing mix will be available for a touchless pick up in our parking lot. In order to avoid lines, we are asking gardeners to make their pick ups in the following time slots based on the first initial of your last name:
9AM to 10AM Last names beginning A thru H
10AM to 11AM Last names beginning I thru O
11AM thru Noon Last names beginning P thru Z
If you wished you had ordered more, or didn’t get a chance to place an order before our March 31st deadline, additional organic vegetable and herb seedlings, as well as a limited number of pollinator plants, will be available for purchase on Saturday, May 8th from 9:00 AM to Noon. Bags of organic compost and growing mix will also be available. May 8th is the day before Mother’s Day and plants make a great gift for Mom so come and pick up a few extras. Please wear a mask. Cash or checks only. Credit cards will not be accepted.
All proceeds benefit church missions.
We Need Your Help!
We had tremendous success with our seedlings sale preorders. We took in almost twice as much income as last year! But now we have to get over 1,800 plants sorted into individual orders and then get them into people’s cars. We’ll be doing the sorting on Friday, May 7th and pick up will be Saturday, May 8th from 9:00 to noon. We will also have additional plants available for walk up purchases on May 8th. The Green Team is going to need some help to make this all a success so please sign up for one (or more!) of the volunteer time slots below.
