The rainy weather Saturday morning didn't slow down the crowd of
people who arrived early for the plant sale at the gazebo in
Organized by the Kincardine Horticultural Society and the Master
Gardeners, the gazebo was already a beehive of activity an hour
before the sale was supposed to start. Both groups donated about
1,000 perennials and shrubs for the event and a good portion of
those were snapped up by 10 a.m.
The money is used by the horticultural society for the
beautification of the former Town of Kincardine, particularly the
"Welcome" flower bed on Kincardine Avenue and the flag pole flower
bed on Harbour Street.
Past-President, Janet Moyser, said the horticultural society also
holds monthly meetings, featuring excellent speakers. The group
meets the first Monday of every month, and is hosting this year's
annual garden tour, "Through the Garden Gate," on Sunday, July 12.
The Master Gardeners use the funds for education, including night
school sessions at Kincardine District Secondary School.
