The Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS) recently received a generous donation from River Meadow Nursery when it closed its Piercy Road location (the nursery is now located at 4738 Condensory Rd).
“This, in addition to the plants we had under our care for the postponed Spring Plant Sale, has resulted in an amazing stock of perennials, feature trees, shrubs, hedges and more,” said Meaghan Cursons of CCFS, in a press release. “We’re going to host a ‘Summer Pop Up plant sale’ at 3300 Union Road in Cumberland on Saturday, July 11, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. with 100 per cent proceeds to the CCFS in support of land protection, restoration and conservation education projects in and around the Village of Cumberland.”
Available for purchase will be assorted day lilies, salvia, yews, hazels, yellow bark dogwoods, cedars, spiraea, miniature dogwoods, fancy irises, weeping spruce, and other feature trees in large pots and more.
Parking is available on Union Road, south-facing side only (across from entrance).
“Bring a wagon or wheelbarrow if you expect to buy lots, we’ll have some on hand as well,” said Cursons. “Volunteers will assist with vehicles loading at the end of the driveway. Please be cautious of traffic.”
In accordance with COVID-19 safety guidelines, the CCFS will be limiting numbers of people on-site at any time through a managed gate, and the sales area will feature spaced plant inventory and flow direction.
There will be dedicated cash handlers, as well as volunteers to support lineups, spacing and load-outs.
Shoppers and volunteers are encouraged to wear face masks.
