Photos from 2013 Spring Plant Sale

It was another successful year for Spring Plant Sale, held this year in the former J.C. Penney location at Century Plaza. Thousands took advantage of the wide selection and expertise offered at The Gardens’ largest plant sale of the year. Because of Birmingham’s support, the money raised by The Gardens at Spring Plant Sale allows it to achieve its educational mission, funding programs like Discovery Field Trips which has provided a free, curriculum-based science education to nearly 100,000 Birmingham area schoolchildren over the last decade. Check out some photos of the volunteers and people that made it great!

The Arlington School will assist with Spring Plant Sale on Friday, April 5, and will continue to work with The Gardens with the Centennial Tree Planting project through next fall planting at George Ward Park, Pratt City and Northeast Jefferson County.
