Youth Plant Sale

On Mother’s Day, May 8, our youth will team with East Central Ministries to hold a plant sale in the courtyard by the front entrance. There will be organically grown garden seedlings, hanging flower baskets, local honey, clay ollas, and more. Proceeds will support youth mission projects as well as East Central’s ministry to low-income folks in the International District. (Our recent urban farm service project helped make possible this plant sale, so we have a great circle of service.) Stop by the tables from 8:30am to 12:30pm, and pick up something lovely and local for Mom, or even for yourself! Click here for more details.
