The Woodinville Garden Club recently presented Hopelink a check for $ 16,244.00, made possible by overwhelming public support for its recent online plant sale. The club donated 100% of the revenue from the sale to Hopelink’s Greatest Need Fund Covid-19. 

The plants that were nurtured from seedlings and starts by club members in early spring were nearly all sold out in less than a day. The plants were personally delivered to local Woodinville zip codes or safely picked up “curbside” by the shoppers. Leftover tomato seedlings were shared with the Woodinville Food Bank, the Maltby Food Bank and the Bothell Senior Center Food Pantry. 

The Woodinville Garden Club would like to express heartfelt gratitude to our wonderful supporters without whom our sale and donation would not have been possible.  The location where the planting and growing takes place is thanks to the overwhelming generosity of a Woodinville family who for many years have welcomed the garden club to use their beautiful greenhouse. This year, over 170 plant orders were fulfilled at the greenhouse. 

Many thanks also to The Wooden Cross Church in Woodinville who graciously approved curbside pickup to take place in their parking lot. 

A sincere and appreciative thank you goes to all who shopped the online sale that resulted in the club’s donation to Hopelink’s Greatest Need Fund Covid-19. The plants are now growing in gardens in Woodinville, Bothell, Renton, Everett, Bellevue, Monroe and Seattle.  For the past 35 years, the Woodinville Garden Club has made contributions to our community and globally because of this remarkable support. We look forward to seeing you next year when the plant sale will return to beautiful Chateau Ste. Michele in May and the Tour of Gardens in July.
