The Woodstock Neighborhood Association Plant Sale
This year’s pre-Mother’s Day Woodstock Plant Sale is slated for Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Woodstock Community Center. Proceeds from the annual sale go into the Woodstock Community Center Maintenance Fund to cover routine maintenance costs, including custodial service and supplies, plus some landscaping. This is all coordinated by a WNA committee known as the Friends of the Woodstock Community Center (FWCC), in collaboration with Portland Parks and Recreation, as per a partnership agreement that keeps the Center open and available for community use. Funds raised by FWCC may also be used for other neighborhood community projects.
The plant sale depends primarily on donations from generous gardeners in our community.
Gardeners contribute by potting divided perennials or seedlings (in late March or early April) that have volunteered from previous years’ plantings. Some people contribute healthy plants they want to replace. In addition to many varieties of perennials, past plant sales included vegetable starts, herbs, ground covers, native plants, ornamental grasses, houseplants, and small trees and shrubs. Plant donations will be accepted at the Woodstock Community Center on the day before the sale, Friday, May 12, between Noon and 7 PM. If you need empty pots or an alternate drop-off time, call Terry Griffiths at 503-771-0011 or Sandy Profeta at 503-771-7724.
