WARDSBORO, Vt. – The Friends of the Wardsboro Library is sponsoring its annual Memorial Day weekend Plant Sale Saturday, May 26 at 170 Main Street, Wardsboro. The Wardsboro Library trustees will also hold their annual bake sale at the same location beginning at 9 a.m. until all the homemade goodies are sold. Admission and parking are free and both events are held rain or shine. The annual plant sale is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Wardsboro Library, a nonprofit organization that supports the Wardsboro Public Library, www.friendsofwardsborolibrary.org.
The plant sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. is at 170 Main Street on the front lawn of the Wardsboro Library. A large variety of hearty perennials, colorful annuals, shrubs, gilfeather turnip seedlings, vegetables, and herbs are all reasonably priced for the one-day sale. Vermont Extension Master Gardeners will be present to answer gardening questions. A one-day-only raffle of select garden related prizes is scheduled with winners announced at the close of the sale.
The Friends are once again sponsoring their annual Best Raffle Ever, featuring a custom-made side table designed and handcrafted by Wardsboro resident and master cabinet maker, Peter Sebastian. The table, crafted from a local rock maple tree, will be on display at the sale. Purchase raffle tickets at the sale, during library hours, or print your own at www.friendsofwardsborolibrary.org.
