The Friends of the Conservatory Fall Plant Sale takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 14.
The Fall Sale offers primarily tropical plants, succulents and cacti for sale, similar to the plants in the Conservatory. Frequently selected plants from the displays and collections are included in the sale.
The Palm House and Gift Shop are also having a sale on September 14, so stop by to find the perfect plant and pot!
A percentage of the proceeds from the sale provide direct support to the Gardeners’ displays and collections, and the remainder support Friends of the Conservatory and the programming it offers to the public.
New this year: Friends of the Conservatory members can start shopping at 9 a.m.!
The Friends of the Conservatory (FOC) is a nonprofit organization formed in 1980 to provide financial, educational and events support for the Conservatory. The FOC helps fund the Conservatory’s orchid collection, pays for descriptive tour materials and environmental education, and contributes to the Plant Acquisition Fund. Working with Conservatory staff, the FOC also organizes educational activities and hosts events, such as the popular annual holiday open house and the plant sale in May.
The Conservatory is located in the north end of Volunteer Park at 1400 E Galer St.
