Announcing the ORGC Perennial & Garden Plant Sale

We’re thrilled to announce our upcoming, annual Perennial & Garden Plant Sale on Saturday, May 20th from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.

Most plants are grown from ORGC members’ gardens — each specimen has been lovingly cultivated and cared for.  Also available will be Shelton City Flower Plants (Rudbeckia fulgida) and a wide variety of homemade baked goods.  Proceeds will benefit garden and scholarship activities.

The Perennial & Garden Plant Sale will be held at the St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Parking Lot at 25 Church Street on the Huntington Green in Shelton.

We hope to see you there!
