Is it a plant sale or is a party? It’s the best of both!
Over the years, the Arboretum has hosted springtime “events” ranging from fancy dress-up catered dinners to more casual Sunday brunches. Friday evening’s members-only “Pick of the Pots” during the spring and fall plant sales is a worthy successor in that tradition. This informal event allows our supporters to get “first dibs” on our plants that will be for sale to the general public the following two days.
Homemade hors d’oeuvres and wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages are offered to our members, courtesy of the Board of Trustees. It’s our way of saying thank you for supporting the Arboretum and its mission.
Last May, I saw smiles everywhere, certainly among the plants for sale, but especially at the tables of food and wine. It was obvious that everyone felt in the company of friends. It’s a great time to renew your membership, eat, drink, relax, and enjoy talking to kindred spirits. And shop for plants! and books too!
Your next opportunity: Pick of the Pots will be held on Friday, September 8, 4 – 7 PM, preceding the Fall Plant Sale.
