The beautiful spring weather has people eager to work on their gardens and outdoor living spaces. Luckily, with the recent phase-one reopening plan for Kansas in effect, the annual Nazareth Motherhouse Plant Sale will be able to take place, with some restrictions.
“This year will be a bit different because of the social distancing rules,” said Assistant Development Director Ambria Gilliland. “Shoppers will be asked to keep six feet between them and other shoppers and only 10 people will be allowed to browse at one time. Others will be asked to patiently wait in a designated area.”
Additionally, this year will not include the annual Manna House of Prayer garage sale. It is anticipated the garage sale will return this fall.
“If you haven’t been to our plant sale, you must check it out,” Gilliand said. “Our organic gardener, Lyle Pounds, has been busy this winter preparing beautiful flowers and hanging plants.
“We will have our ever-popular hanging baskets again this year with an array
of other plants and fun succulents,” Gilliland said. “Because of the lock-down, we don’t have the crafts we normally do, but we have many beautiful plants that are ready to go to new homes.”
All proceeds from the plant sale will go to further the ministries of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia.
The event is located south of the garages on the west side of the Motherhouse at 1300 Washington in Concordia. Parking is available in both the east and west parking lots.
