Plant Sale to benefit Stanley Stamm Summer Camp

May 8th and 9th, There will be a benefit plant sale of Tomato and pepper plants to benefit the Stanley Stamm Summer camp. It will be held at the Grocery Outlet, 236 S.W. 152ND ST, in Burien, prices start at $1.25 per plant. A great way to grow tomatoes and help out a good cause at the same time- Hat Trick! So if you haven't started your tomato plants, or just want to grow a couple, come on out and pick some up! I know I will be there onFriday or Saturday buying tomatoes (I can never get enough of good tomato plants) and maybe pick up some peppers! I talked to Carol (the organizer/grower) and she is doubtful about the peppers but says she will have around 80 varieties of tomatoes, lots of cherry tomatoes, and some heirloom tomato plants.
Personally, I think this is a capital way for an organization to earn money. And cool to sell "plantables" instead of chocolate bars, too. Anyone out there raise money for an organization doing cool things like this?
