Tuckaleechee Garden Club Hosts Spring Garden Sale – submitted by Allison Pearson
On a beautiful spring morning in the Smoky Mountains, Tuckaleechee Garden Club, District IV, Townsend, TN hosted their annual plant sale on Saturday, August 23rd led by the incredible duo of Theresa and Scott Schehr. The plant sale is the club’s biggest fundraising event, with all proceeds earmarked for the community service project, the Townsend River Walk and Arboretum. The sale was held at a new location this year on the front lawn of the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center. Garden club members donated plants from their own gardens, and several members worked diligently to propagate plants specifically for the sale. Theresa Schehr provided her famous selection of heirloom and rare tomatoes looking healthy and strong. The plant sale also featured herbs, annuals, perennials, bulbs, trees, shrubs, garden tools and accessories, and the ever-popular shade-loving native wildflowers. The club raised approximately $2,600 from the event.
