Looking for your help

We are planning our 4th annual charity plant sale, benefiting Children's Hospital Boston through Children�s Miracle Network Hospitals, to be held this May 2012. This year we hope to raise $15,000. The plants are obtained from volunteer gardening enthusiasts, like ourselves, and from wholesale and retail donations.

This year's goal is going to take a lot of plants. And while we are looking forward to the challenge of growing them, we are asking for your support through donations of:

Any plant material, or propagation supplies (seeds, trays, plug cells, starting mix, potting mix, plant tags, fertilizer, etc.)

Trays of herbs and blooming plants each week in May

Any staff that would like to spend a few hours sharing their knowledge of plants at the sale. (they will get a one day shopping pass to Costco Avon as well as a free meal from the Costco food court)

Any items or advice you think would be helpful in this endeavor would be welcome as well.

Costco Wholesale in Avon not only provides the venue for the sale, but will also provide one extra large conspicuously posted Children's Miracle Network Sponsorship Balloon/Poster with your business information for any donation worth $500 at retail. Your contributions are tax deductible.

To make a donation or to learn more about our fundraiser, contact
Michelle Tarver (774-273-0020, or
Aaron Tarver (774-273-0018,

Please join us in helping a great cause that has a tremendous impact on the lives of so many children and families.
