Our Annual Christmas Potluck and Plant-a-Paloosa was a great success!

The food was amazing, the company was unsurpassed and the list of plants that were auctioned and raffled off was exceptional. Every fruit-bearing plant genus you could think of was represented. There must have been over a hundred plants given away in all. The auction alone (with our biggest spenders in for the Show-Down bidding of the Year) made $350.00 towards future scholarships! One plant was even sold twice... thanks Alisha!
