Photos and Story by James Hill
Portland Community College’s Rock Creek Campus is offering more of a good thing on Oct. 22 and 23, when its wildly successful annual plant sale makes a surprise fall appearance at the campus.
The annual event that usually coincides with Mother’s Day in May will show off perennials, ground covers, Japanese Maples and "much, much more!" at very reasonable prices, according to plant sale organizers. Plant sale coordinator Keven Caldwell said there will be a limited supply of as many as 40 different plant varieties on sale during the two-day event.
The sale will begin at 7:30 a.m. and run until 6 p.m. at the Rock Creek Campus Greenhouse on Friday, Oct. 22. The sale continues on Saturday, Oct. 23 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Proceeds from the sale will go toward PCC Landscape Technology student scholarships and Landscape Technology course materials. At the Mother’s Day sale last May, more than $12,000 was raised for student scholarships.
