Plants at bargain prices for your spring gardening projects
On Saturday 26th August the Lions Club of South Vermont will hold their Spring Plant Sale.
There will be a wide variety of plants available on the day with prices starting at just $2.50. Larger plants and more exotic varieties will be priced accordingly, however expect to pay significantly less than you would at a commercial plant nursery.
The plants have been professionally grown and sourced and there will be around 100 different varieties on offer – something to suit every garden.
Funds raised by the sale will be used to support the many varied charitable activities that Lions are involved in.
The Lions Club of South Vermont focuses its activities locally within the City of Whitehorse, supporting local people with a disability, needy and disadvantaged community members and community greening projects. Nationally and internationally Lions have many charitable foundations. Some of these very worthy foundations include the Childhood Cancer Research and Cord Blood Foundations and the Australian Lions Children's Mobility Foundation which assists children affected by Cerebral Palsy.
Lions Australia is Australia's largest service club with more than 1,200 clubs in Australia and Papua New Guinea. Membership is open to men and women over the age of 18 years and of good moral character and reputation. This year is the centenary of Lions internationally.

The plant sale starts at 8.30 am and will be held at Charlesworth Park, corner of Mullens and Livingston Roads, Vermont South. There is plenty of street parking available and it is conveniently located near the Vermont South Shopping Centre.
Formed in 1985, the Lions Club of South Vermont is a small but committed group of around 30 members. Please consider supporting these men and women who volunteer their time and labour for the good of our community.
