It was without a doubt a collaboration of members to think outside the box for the 2020 annual plant sale. We began making plans to sell online, thanks to the proposed efforts of member and webmaster, Jolyn Barrow. Then we came up with 'divide and conquer'...that stuck and so it began that several members would open their driveways and yards over several weekends and offer for sale the plants that would have been all located at the club's cottage. What dedication by the members who provided their time and efforts. Wow, it really paid off and we extended the sale so we included the Garden Week in Ga.
