*Please note that for the inaugural year of this sale, vendors will not be charged a table fee, though donations to the Elmwood Old Girls’ Scholarship are always welcome.


We will need help from the Elmwood community to make the plant sale a success, as we hope the source of the plants for the sale will be from all our gardens.
