Plant Sale & Auction Benefits 4-H
For the second year in a row, the Green Thumbs Garden Club held a spring plant sale and auction to benefit Oldham County 4-H. Green Thumbs and Oldham County Master Gardeners collected plants, containers, garden sculptures, and other garden decor for the event. This year, the clubs raised a total of $1,284, roughly a hundred dollars more than last year! This generous donation will be used as scholarships to send Oldham County children to 4-H camp in the summer.
Thank you Green Thumbs and Master Gardeners for your continued support!
