You may have been to the Plant Sale before, but you may learn something new here as Barb Colvin tells about the trees and shrubs she’s ordered from Fort Collins. Shirley Gloss-Soler, the Tomato Lady, will talk about the herbs and tomatoes you will find, and Pam Hamamoto will tell us about the Plant Select program and introduce us to the 2011 selections. We’ll also answer any questions about the sale itself! (If you’re volunteering at the sale, this is a terrific opportunity to brush up on how it all works and what will be available.)
