Saturday, April 30th was the school’s plant and craft sale in Downtown Prestonsburg. It was a huge success! The Inch by Inch Service Learning group brought in several hundred dollars for our garden program through this fundraiser!
Items sold: Plant and flower starts, student made spice racks, garden signs (made from old chair backs) and David School apparel.
Not only did those involved with the school come out to support our fundraiser, but many community members did as well. It was a great moment of recognition for our garden’s accomplishments. So much hard work, creativity and dedication went into pulling off this event. You may ask, “What all went into planning?” Let’s see here…
-seeds were started back in February and nurtured into healthy, young plants
-flyers were handed out at every major business in Prestonsburg
-phone calls were made to the newspaper and radio station
-handmade spice racks and signs were created (talk about time, patience and effort!)
-a large banner painted
-organization (so we could remember all details, big and small!)
-a great deal of passion
I am beyond proud of our students and staff for making this event a success. I can only hope that next spring we can expand this sale and reach even more community members! The items not sold on Saturday will be sold on opening day at the Floyd County Farmer’s Market on May 28th! [9 a.m.- 2 p.m.] So if you couldn’t make it to our sale, come stop by our farmer’s market booth at the end of the month!
Enjoy some of our fun photos from the day!
