According to Event Co-Chairs Sheryl Reifler and Joni Andrews, money raised goes to many community projects, including: maintaining the gardens at Compo and the Library, Earthplace's entrance area, Grace Salmon Park. It also allows the club to make donations to Soundwaters, for Staples tuition grants, and to about 20 organizations in toto. Garden Club members donate a minimum of 20 plants for the sale from their gardens and bring three or four baked goods. What do people buy most? "Things that bloom," says Sheryl "and tomato plants."
