This year the Landscape Ontario Growers Group will stage its annual fund-raiser on Aug. 14. In honour of Sheridan Nurseries’ 100th anniversary year, the company’s Georgetown location will host the event. It all begins at 10 a.m. with farm tours, followed by lunch compliments of Sheridan.

The auction begins at 1 p.m. when attendees can bid on top quality plant material at below-wholesale prices. And top quality is the key here, with the pride of growers evident as they show off their high-end plant material.

Last year over $20,000 was raised toward industry research and scholarships.

All industry donations are welcomed for auction, including plant material, related hard goods, garden giftware, silent auction items, etc. There will also be live judging of the Growers Awards of Excellence entries.

There is no fee to attend, just bring your staff and your trailer.

To donate, or for more information, contact Kristen McIntyre at auction@landscapeontario.com, or 1-800-265-5656, ext. 321.
