Club members will be at the sales table to answer gardening questions and provide information about the club. They will have fragrant daffodil bulbs (gopher resistant), native plants, mountain gardening books and more, available for purchase.
Guests are encouraged to bring a sack lunch to enjoy a picnic in the pines. The club will provide light refreshments.
