2011 Plant Celebration & Garden Sale at the Centre Furnace Mansion.
Saturday, May 14, 2011
9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Please join us on Saturday, May 14 for the Centre County Historical Society's annual Plant Celebration & Garden Sale at the Centre Furnace Mansion. There will be over 100 different kinds of perennials and annual flowers, herbs, and even small shrubs and trees. Gift baskets filled with a mix of perennials, annuals and herbs will be available. In addition to the plants for sale from the Centre Furnace gardens, there will be participating local businesses selling plants and garden-related items from their own booths, with a portion of their sales going to the Mansion gardens.
The Plant Celebration & Garden Sale is one of CCHS's largest fundraising events. Proceeds from this event are used toward grounds maintenance and garden supplies at Centre Furnace Mansion and Boogersburg School. As government funding decreases, special fundraising events like the Plant Celebration are even more critical than ever. We hope you will consider attending to enjoy the wide variety of plant offerings, the gardens and a tour through the Centre Furnace Mansion.
2011 vendors include:
Penn State Extension Master Gardeners of Centre County
Bring your gardening questions and even samples of plants that you would like to have identified or insect/disease damage that needs to be diagnosed – there will be Master Gardeners on hand to handle these questions and will have gardening fact sheets available.
The Centre Furnace Mansion is located at 1001 E. College Avenue, State College, PA 16801 (our parking lot is off of Porter Road, and overflow parking is off of College Avenue – look for signs).
Admission to the Plant Celebration is free. For more information, please call us at (814) 234-4779.
