"This is a great opportunity for bargain-hunters, since all the sale items have been donated by club members," club president Jeri Stark said. "We have every kind of treasures, from live plants to garden tools, kitchen ware to art items."
Proceeds will help fund ongoing community service projects, such as the care of public gardens at Centennial Park Sensory Garden in Pleasanton and Hansen Park Rose Garden in Livermore, plus raising food for neighbors in need at Eden Community Garden and Clare's Fair.
Usually the club's main fundraiser has been a plant sale each spring, but the pandemic has forced cancellation, Stark explained.
Visitors to this weekend's sale also will have the opportunity to learn about club membership. Monthly meetings from September to June are held online for now, each with a guest speaker and slide show.
Special interest groups focus on edible gardening, native plants, floral design and seed-sharing. Also members enjoy group tours to outstanding gardens and nurseries.
The club was started in 1984 with 12 members and its membership is now more than 200. For more information, visit www.lavgc.org.
