Earth Day plant sale for Cumberland Forest Society

The Cumberland Community Forest Society is hosting a plant sale and Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 3rd and Dunsmuir (next to the Wandering Moose) and in Village Square. This special day will include some hands-on fun, community displays and a plant sale to help launch your yard and garden into the season!

One hundred per cent of proceeds from this sale support the CCFS’s current efforts to complete the purchase of a 40-hectare parcel of forest just south of the Village fondly known as Space Nugget.

Donations of perennials, trees, shrubs, berries, annuals, veggie starts, gardening books and lightly used tools are very welcome.

Plants can be dropped of anytime at 3301 1st Street or at  3300 Union Road (call ahead 218-3175).

Or call Carolyn at 218-3175 or email info@cumberlandforest.com to make arrangements or to deliver the morning of the event.

To find out about setting up a free display or information booth at this event message Meaghan at meaghan@cumberlandforest.com.

• Note: this event date has changed to April 23 from April 24 due to street closures for Snow to Surf.
