Mountain Garden Club Plant Sale
The Mountain Garden Club is known for their high kicks and choreographed moves in the annual Highlands Olde Mountain Christmas Parade, but what they are most proud of is the work they do locally.
Their biggest fundraiser is the annual Plant Sale, held this year Saturday, May 27, from 9:00 A.M. to noon.
The Mountain Garden Club tends to be quiet about the work they do in the community. They have planted and tended gardens at the Eckerd Living Center and have many educational projects with the students at Highlands School. The club has helped the Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the Nature Center, and helped to fund portions of the renovation at the Kelsey Hutchinson Park. The monies made from the annual plant sale help support local scholarships and are donated to meaningful projects throughout the Highlands area.
Champion their good works by attending the plant sale, held at the Highlands Ball Field on the corner of Highway 64 and Hickory Street. Bring your own cart, wagon or sled, or use the wide variety of sleds made available by the club to load up your purchases. They will even help get all your plants in your car.
