Amos Fund plant sale needs your extra greens

STERLING – It’s going to be a beautiful weekend for yard work, but don’t ditch those extra plants springing up in your beds – consider donating them instead.

Amos Fund founder Deb Proctor happily will turn your greenery into greenbacks.

The fund’s annual plant sale, a fundraiser that helps those in need pay part of their pets’ vet bills, will be held from 8 a.m. to noon (or until all the plants are sold) May 18 at the Grandon Civic Center gazebo on Fourth Street downtown.

For the sale to succeed, Proctor needs donations of plants or cuttings.

They can be dropped off that morning at Grandon, or arrangements can be made to drop them off ahead of the sale, or have them picked up.

They’ll sell for anywhere from $1 to $5, depending on the size of the clump, and University of Illinois Extension Service Master Gardeners will be on hand to help identify plants and advise on their care.

For more information or to make arrangements, contact Proctor at deb@debproctor.com or 815-213-0164 or Deb Arneson at 815-441-2879..

To donate straight to the fund, send a check to Proctor’s office, ReMax Sauk Valley, 110 Lynn Blvd., Sterling, IL 61081.
