V.I. Audubon Plant Sale To Be March 5 at Lutheran Church

This year’s V.I. Audubon Plant Sale has been moved from its usual home in Frank Powell Sr. Park, above, to the Nazareth Lutheran Church.

The V.I. Audubon Society has been raising money for the past 13 years through its plant sale.

The funds are used to sponsor numerous programs for local school children on St. John, preservation and restoration efforts at the Small Pond at Frank Bay — a Virgin Islands-designated Wildlife and Marine Sanctuary and area adopted by the Audubon Society — and participate in events on Earth Day and Reef Fest hosted by the Friends of the V.I. National Park.

This year’s plant sale will be on Saturday, March 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Nazareth Lutheran Church in Cruz Bay.

Once again Audubon will offer a wide variety of plants for sale. Anyone looking to add palms, coleus, bay trees, desert rose, agaves, ground covers, orchids and other garden favorites to their landscapes, should make sure to stop by the plant sale. Tomato plants and herbs will also be for sale.

Anyone who would like to donate plants (plants in pots only, please) for the sale, just drop them off at the church yard on March 5 between 8 and 9 a.m. For further information contact co-chairs Dave Spoth at (716) 472-6888 or Mary Moroney at 779-8091.
