The Aransas/San Patricio County Master Gardeners Spring Plant Sale on April 6 was one of our most successful to date! The cool and overcast weather made it enjoyable for the over 550 people in attendance to shop and enjoy the beautiful Coastal Oaks Demonstration Gardens. In four hours, we sold the majority of our plants. This money will help fund vital maintenance at the garden and the educational programs presented to the community.
This year, in addition to the plants, we offered many non-plant related items for sale. Bird/butterfly houses were handmade and beautifully painted by several of our Master Gardeners. Other Master Gardeners took donated wine bottles and turned them into beautiful hummingbird feeders for our spring/fall migration visitors to enjoy.
We also had drawings for several fantastic items donated by Master Gardeners and community members including a garden cart, quilt, birdhouses, hanging baskets, and more.
A huge thank you to everyone who came, shopped, and supported the Master Gardeners! A special thanks to our tremendous team of volunteers who organized and worked at the event, crafted and donated our non-plant items and worked diligently to make our gardens beautiful.
