Thank You - 155th Children's Fair


As co-chair of the Garden Shop I would like to thank my volunteers Angelika Weber  and Cheryl Ricci for their assistance at the 155th Children's Fair. We had a nice selection of annuals and perennials donated by our local nurseres and gardners. Without these contributions there would be no Garden Shop.

Amazing Flower Farm - beautiful, healthy annuals, perennials, vegetable starts, distinctive hanging baskets and patio containers - we've got it all!
We grow them here using biological and natural pest control. We're known for the quality of our plants and the color of our hanging baskets.

We specialize in unique and different, whether it’s custom containers, like the Pam Crawford Line, hanging arrangements, fresh herb baskets, shade plants or hard-to-find large and small landscape trees.
