PIC’s Spring Plant Sale underway

Posted on 26 March 2012

The Parent Infant Center at 42nd and Locust is holding its annual Spring Plant Sale. They have a great selection of annuals, perennials, herbs, fruits & veggies, and hanging baskets.

They are currently taking orders for plants until April 15. This year you can place your order and pay online. To see the catalog and to order, click here. And don’t forget to buy a raffle ticket for a chance to win a basket filled with $100 worth of gardening goodies! The plants will be ready for pickup at PIC on Friday, May 4 (4-6 p.m.) and Saturday, May 5 (10 a.m. – 3 p.m.).

Every penny earned through PIC’s Spring Plant Sale supports their scholarship fund. Over the past decade, PIC families have raised nearly $150,000 to provide scholarships to families in the early learning and school-age programs.

    $150,000/10years means $15,000/year means less than one full year fee for PIC daycare for one child.

    A joke.

    Yeah, screw these people for doing anything at all!

  3. Me2 Says:

    seeing how much work is put into that – yeah, almost yeah – $10/child in PIC/year would produce the same + so much time for community cleaning around.

    Me2, it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.

    But if you still don’t buy it, well, as Stuart Smalley once said, it’s better to put on a pair of slippers than to try to carpet the world.

    size matters, if you get it Tim;)

    The Scholarships help subsidize people who don’t qualify for it from the govt, they aren’t meant to cover the entire years tuition. They make someone’s tuition affordable, not free.

    we benefited from this scholarship a couple of times when our kids were little. no, it didn’t cover the tuition, but one month we just didn’t have the money and the scholarship got us through. we were very grateful.

    What’s better than blooming flowers on a spring day with the sounds of kids in the background? … a good cause to boot!

    Hey “Me2″ – You should come out and get some fresh air, I think you need it :-)
