    1. a bit of both really. I'm on the Sale Committee so I'm responsible for finding plants to sell. (not to mention rounding up volunteers, finding raffle prizes, baking goodies, putting up posters....) All proceeds go to the Community schoolhouse and I tell you they got a good lot of my money too. I bought far more than I anticipated - as usual.
