SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – The annual Plant & Bake Sale to benefit the Springfield Humane Society will take place Saturday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., in front of Peebles at the Springfield Shopping Plaza. This annual event offers a wide variety of house and garden plants as well as delicious treats from local kitchens. The community’s help is requested in the form of donations of baked items, houseplants, and outdoor plants.
Please keep us in mind if you are thinning flower gardens. Hosta, astilbe, iris, phlox, daylilies, and catnip are just a few of the perennials offered at past sales. Last year we had domestic raspberry plants, lilacs, and a few “mystery” plants. If you have a new home, or if you’ve been thinking about adding some new flowers to an existing garden, come to this sale to see what you can buy at very reasonable prices.
For those donating plants, please include the name of the plant, indicate whether it is an indoor or outdoor variety, and growing details; for instance, “likes full sun and a lot of water.” Plants and baked goods can be dropped off the morning of the sale starting at 8 a.m. or call Jill Markert at 802-886-4475 for pick up or if you’re interested in volunteering for this fundraiser.
Beautify your home, satisfy your sweet tooth, and support the Springfield Humane Society’s work for animals that need forever homes.
