Bountiful Cities has had several spring plant sales to support our gardens and (with lots of community participation!) these sales raised much needed money for infrastructure and programming in the gardens! Over $2500 so far! The Bountiful Cities Windfall Collective Nursery is continuing to sell plants throughout the season. Please check out the on-line store on our website for summer and fall plant needs! We appreciate all the help including some wonderful plant donations from Gaia Herbs!
