10th Annual Black Mountain Garden Show & Sale
Thank you all that attended the garden sale on May 16th. The weather was beautiful and we had a large turnout of people who purchased a lot of plants from our vendors. We would also like to thank all the people who spoke at our workshops: Darlene Dimenna, President of the North Carolina Herb Association; Susan Amato from the Black Mountain Beautification Committee; Kathy Kelly of Tufa Things and Joe Dinwiddie of Dry Stone Joe. A special thank you to all the members and friends of the BMBC who made this sale a very special event.
Throughout the day, here is what the vendors were saying about the sale. That our show was their favorite event. No other show serves us coffee and cookies. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I couldn't believe how 8 of you just jumped in and helped me move my plants. You are helping me load, no one does that.
And my all time favorite from a first year vendor, I heard you had sweets for the vendors in the afternoon and I am having a sinking spell.
