Audubon Society Plans Plant Sale Fundraiser

Feb. 5, 2009 – The Virgin Islands Audubon Society will hold its 12th annual plant sale, which will offer plants that have proven growing ability on St. John. The sale will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, on Saturday, March 14, in the Frank Powell Sr. Park, Cruz Bay. There will be a wide variety of plants from local gardens including palms, bay trees, desert roses, agaves, ground covers, orchids and other garden favorites.
