April 12, 2021 - Only Later Delivery Dates are Available
All delivery dates before March 21 are fully booked. Even though the fundraiser is popular for Mother's Day, receiving the delivery closer to the end of May means that the weather will be warmer! Imagine handing out plants in the sunshine - it sounds like a perfect day to us. Plus, you can still start collecting orders now! Register to get set up with a website and book your delivery.
March 22, 2021 - Registration Open Again
Our greenhouse and planning teams were able to come together to execute on our plan to plant more plants! With more plant babies filling the rows in the greenhouse we are able to re-open registration for the spring plant fundraiser and everyone previously on the waitlist has been registered.
March 19, 2021 - Planting More Plants AGAIN
We want to allow as many groups to fundraise and provide plants for their communities! To do so we've planted more plants (again) even though this requires creating more greenhouse space (somehow). They won't be ready until the end of May, but we know these plant babies will help spread cheer during the pandemic. Growing Plants, Growing Smiles, Growing Communities.
March 17, 2021 - Waitlist for New Groups
The demand for plants to be even higher than what we has planned for. Registration temporarily closed and a waitlist has been implemented. We want to be sure that we can provide plants for all the groups that are currently registered and fundraising. All groups that are waitlisted will be contacted when we figure out what is available. Stay tuned!
March 22, 2021 - On-site Vaccinations
As a greenhouse and large, family-run business with temporary foreign workers, our greenhouse received vaccinations on site. By vaccinating any employee that wanted the vaccine we took another step to protect our people, our workplace and our communities.
February 25, 2021 - Planting More Plants
More groups are signing up for the fundraiser than expected, and their online sales are off to a strong start! We've planted more plants to keep up with the demand and so we don't have to turn away any groups.
January 25, 2021- Spring Fundraiser Registration Open!
With three seasons of fundraising during COVID under our belt, we are confident in our ability to help groups run a safe fundraiser during the pandemic. Gardening is on the rise, and we are so excited to share our passion for plants with your communities. Welcome to the team!
COVID-19 Safety Precautions
Now, more than ever, we need to work together to keep our communities safe and connected. At each step of the fundraiser we can implement precautions to reduce potential exposure to our customers and supporters. Here is our recommendations for Best Practices while the pandemic is ongoing. We can do this.
Planning Safe Pick-ups
- Use a small group of volunteers with PPE
- Assign time-slots to reduce congestion and encourage physical distancing
- Plan a contact-free pick-up process such as:
- Front porch pick-ups
- Deliveries (especially for high-risk customers)
- Prevent crowding
- Put out signs with instructions
- Mark waiting spots that are 6-ft apart with tape
- Plan a one-direction loop for any lines
