Open Garden & Lily Sale

    Help support Grow Food, Grow Hope and celebrate the life of one of our beloved members by attending the Open Garden & Lily Sale at Mary Ellen Krisher’s home next weekend!  Mary Ellen’s expansive garden will be open for viewing, showcasing her wide variety of flowers, trees, and other plant life, as well as over one hundred varieties of lilies which will be on sale. Light refreshments will also be served.
    The event will benefit The Fred Krisher Grow Food, Grow Hope Endowment Fund. Fred Krisher was a cherished member of the community, a Wilmington College alumnus and trustee, and an invaluable member of the Grow Food, Grow Hope family. He was also a member of the Cincinnati Day Lily & Hosta Society, and he was incredibly passionate about gardening and sharing his knowledge with others. He imparted his love for gardening and his community with unrelenting enthusiasm, and Grow Food, Grow Hope is incredibly grateful for his commitment to our program. The endowment will help fund out community gardens, educational initiatives, workshops, and community outreach.
    The Open Garden & Lily Sale will be held one Saturday, June 23rd, from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm, and Sunday, June 24th, from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm. Mary Ellen Krisher will host the event at her home at 664 Hadley Road in Clarskville, OH.
