HOLLIDAYSBURG - The Discovery Garden, a program of The Skills Foundation, will host its annual plant sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the Discovery Garden's gazebo at Legion Park.
The plant sale is made possible by the donations from The Home Depot, Tussey Mountain Mulch, Split Rail Daylilies and Leidy's, as well as several other local area greenhouses and Skills of Central Pennsylvania Inc.'s Horticulture Therapy Program. A large variety of plants will be available at the sale, including annuals, perennials, herbs and vegetables, along with some craft items. A small silent auction will also take place during the sale featuring two hand-crafted stain glass birdhouses, a large mosaic planter and a large terrarium. The Skills' Horticultural Therapy Program provides hands-on gardening experience for individuals with developmental disabilities and promotes community inclusion.
The individuals served by Skills have been hard at work making a large selection of hypertufa stepping stones and bird baths for the sale.
They have also been working hard to grow some tomato and basil plants for the sale in their greenhouse. Courtesy photo
