The Canoe Cove Plant Sale

It's time .......

The Canoe Cove Plant Sale is coming.


I expect to see you all there bright and early on Saturday morning, May 31, 2014.  The sale starts at 8 am and runs until 12 noon.  A reminder - the sale is rain OR shine.  Inman Park has buildings which can accommodate the sale, so if it's raining we'll be under cover.

The canteen will be open during the sale featuring coffee, tea, juice and baked goodies.

There is a playground for the young'uns.

We have aged cow manure and mushroom compost for sale.

There will be a raffle featuring FOUR prizes including a handmade birdhouse and a gift certificate for mulch.

Last but not least ..... there will be PLANTS.  Lots of them.  We can never predict exactly what plants will make their way onto the tables but I will give you a hint at some of what will be there.





Please note that if you have plants you would like to donate to the sale we would greatly appreciate them.  All plant donations can be brought to Inman Park on Friday, May 30 at 6pm.

See you then!

  1. Sorry I won't be able to make it, Marguerite, but I wish your group a successful sale! I've been to several plant sales locally and found so many great plants I had no idea I needed:)

    1. LOL, that's my problem too Rose. I always end up taking more home from the sale than I bring!

  5. Marguerite, do the proceeds from the sale benefit a local organization? Hope you have good weather and sell every plant!

    1. Thank you! I totally forgot to mention that. The plant sale is a fundraiser for the old Canoe Cove Schoolhouse. The Association is tasked with maintaining the schoolhouse and each year funds are needed to pay for taxes, repairs, etc. Last year major renovations were completed and the schoolhouse is now wheelchair accessible which is fantastic. We use it for all the community events and it's an important historical part of the community so we work hard to keep it going.

    1. Now that's an exciting thought! Hard to believe you'll be a full time islander soon. Absolutely amazing how the time has flown (well maybe for me, probably a lot slower for you?) Congrats on the coming retirement.
