Spring 2014 - the Mayor’s Garden got a redesign and face lift ANNUAL PLANT SALE - We hold our annual plant sale in the City of Arlington in May. Members dig up and divide plants from their own gardens as well as gardens of friends and neighbors (with permission of course!) to contribute to the plant sale. This event is a major fundraiser for our club with a large turn-out from the community. Our bake sale table is also a huge hit and generates return customers.
