Amherst Island Plant Sale

The Amherst Island Community Alliance is pleased to announce our major fundraiser for 2021: our first ever plant sale. What is so unique and special about this event is the concept that all island residents can shop safely for plant material right here on Amherst Island. It is our hope that a wide variety of plant material, from seeds to seedlings to perennial divisions and beyond, will be available for all of us to purchase at reasonable prices. We will be offering contactless payment options, and social distancing protocols will be in place.

We are looking for help collecting plant material! If you happen to have extra seeds, seedlings, or perennial plant divisions to make, we would like you to consider donating some to the cause. We are also accepting cash donations so as to help us round out the offering. Please email us (aicommunityalliance@gmail.com) and let us know if you can help us produce the best event we possibly can! And yes, we are looking for volunteers to help in the week leading up to the event.

Donations to help support AICA can be made via e-transfer and sent to aicommunityalliance@gmail.com. Please use “PlantSale” as the security answer.

To follow along with the plant sale progress, please feel free to tune into The Udder Morning Show on CJAI 92.1 FM Monday mornings between 8:30-10am.
