Williamstown: Plant sale to benefit Pine Cobble School
Pine Cobble School will host its fourth annual plant sale from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 31, at the school, 163 Gale Road.
The potluck-style plant sale is modeled after the former ABC plant sale; gardeners from throughout the region donate hundreds of successful plants from their own gardens -- ensuring hardy plants that can thrive locally.
Many of the plants at Pine Cobble’s plant sale come directly from the renowned gardens of Phil and Susie Smith, who hosted the ABC plant sale for many years. Plants are priced from $2 to $8.
Plants of all sizes will be available, including hundreds of shade- and sun-loving perennials, both flowers and foliage, as well as herbs and Mother’s Day planters. Free baked goods and coffee will be available, as well as a raffle for a flowering shrub.
All plants will be organized by height, bloom season, and sun/shade preferences. Experienced gardeners will be on hand to advise customers as they make selections, and members of the Pine Cobble community will help carry selections to the car.
All proceeds will directly benefit children in the community; Pine Cobble School -- which receives no state or federal funding -- draws much of its budget for field trips from the sale.
