A mini Heirloom Plant Sale is going to be held at Stone Silo Prairie Gardens, 2325 Oak Ridge Circle, De Pere, Wednesday, May 20 from Noon to 5 p.m. to benefit UW-Green Bay students. The annual event that supports student research and independent projects had to be moved off campus. Organizers hope you will attend and support the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity. See the plant list. More, at the Center for Biodiversity page. Once again, Prof. Steve Meyer will be selling salsa with proceeds going to the Katie Hemauer Scholarship.
Here’s a message from longtime organizer Vicki Medland:
“We know how many of you are missing the plant sale and we have a surprise! Volunteer Dorothy Summers grew over 500 tomato and pepper plants in her brand new greenhouse and will be selling them at at Stone Silo Prairie Nursery on Wednesday, May 20 from Noon to 5 p.m. or until they sell out. Lots of favorites available for our hard-core fans. Please come out and visit Vicki and Dorothy from a socially safe distance, of course.
We will be outside and will be selling contact-free. CASH ONLY and BRING YOUR OWN CONTAINERS. All money goes into the NAS Heirloom Plant Sale Fund. We usually raise enough money to support 8-12 research projects and internships each year. This year we hope to raise $1,000 to support at least one scholarship.
But that’s not all! Steve Meyer will be there with his world famous Heirloom Salsas. All salsa sales support the Scholarship.
And wait there is even more! We will not have flowers, you can select from a wide selection of beautiful native perennials for your flower gardens from Stone Silo while you are there.
Stone Silo Prairie Nursery is located in Depere, WI at 2325 Oak Ridge Circle. For info on their plants please visit http://www.stonesiloprairie.com/.”
