April 2014

2014 Annual PICA Plant Sale

April 1 @ 8:00 am - May 2 @ 5:00 pm

The weather is changing and soon spring will be here. Now is the time to start thinking of that garden you want to put in or add to an existing one. I know just the way to do that! We are currently working on the 2014 PICA Plant sale catalog!
Indulge your love of plants by choosing from over sixty-five varieties of organic, field-grown perennials, including many plants native to Maine or New England. Prices match or beat those you’d find in nurseries, but a portion of every sale goes to support PICA’s work. And you know these plants have been through the toughest that a Maine winter can deal out!
We began taking orders on April 1st. Plants will be available for pickup the weekend of May 17th. If you are interested in ordering give me a call or send me an email and I will be happy to send you a catalog.
We are also trying to grow the plant sale by finding new sellers: individuals willing to share catalogs with friends, neighbors, acquaintances and collect their order forms, and then (only if convenient) provide a drop off place for people to pick up their plants. The plants are all organic, field-grown, and super hardy from Rebel Hill Farm run by Pete and Julie Beckford. These plants practically sell themselves, but still seem to need a little human help. So, if you are interested in selling plants give me a call at 947-4203 or email me at elleng@pica.ws.
