    Save the Date for the Hospice & Community Care Plant Sale

    Calling all plant lovers! Mark your calendars for Hospice & Community Care’s annual Plant Sale on June 3 and 4. When you purchase plants from Hospice & Community Care, not only are you picking up everything you need to transform your garden this season, you are also supporting families and patients faced with the unforeseeable challenges that accompany a serious illness. All proceeds from the sale provide care and support for patients and families who are coping with a serious illness or facing the end of life.


    At Hospice & Community Care, community is everything. As an organization that believes nobody should endure trying times alone, Hospice & Community Care honors the dignity, comfort, and safety of each patient. With personalized care options, both patients and families are supported and cared for as they journey through the challenges they face following an unexpected diagnosis. 

    Hospice & Community Care’s Plant Sale supports this mission and contributes to the continuation of their important work. 


    Located at The Essa Flory Center at 685 Good Drive, the Plant Sale hours will be 3 PM- 7 PM on Friday and 7 AM- 1 PM on Saturday. Rain or shine, you will find perennials and annuals, vegetables and herbs, house plants and succulents, and shrubs. Looking for some expert gardening advice? You can also chat with Tim Arpin and James Henning from The Gilded Lily and have all of your gardening questions answered before you buy. They will even have several food trucks parked on site and enjoy a snack while you shop. Credit, cash, or check are accepted at the event.
