Save the date for Redding Garden Club’s annual Spring Plant Sale, Saturday, May 12, from 9am to 1pm at Lonetown Farm. Come see friends, shop for Mother’s Day, and find the perfect plants to add to your garden or to fill in from this winter’s difficult storms. The Garden Club will be selling a wide selection of annuals, perennials, herbs and vegetables, along with member-grown plants, many of which are deer-resistant. Another popular attraction is “Second Hand Rose,” where shoppers can pick-up garden-related and other decorative items at tag sale prices.

This is a community-wide event, with the chance to meet many of Redding’s non-profit groups and learn how they help make Redding a special place to live. Volunteers from the Redding Conservation Commission's “Trail Tenders,” the Norwalk River Valley Trail, Neighbors and Newcomers, New Pond Farm, and Highstead will be among those on hand. Please come out and join us on May 12!
