May 03, 2014: Own a Bloomin' Piece of The Museum
On Saturday, May 3, 2014, from 9 a.m. until noon, the Reading Public Museum's Arboretum Committee and volunteers will be selling plants from The Museum's Arboretum, as well as a selection of hardy perennials from a local nursery, as a fundraiser for The Museum. Spring is a great time for sprucing up your garden, and for you to own a piece of the historical and beautiful Museum grounds. This rain-or-shine event will take place at the greenhouse located on Parkside Drive South.
Tours of the Arboretum and the recently renovated greenhouse will also be available, and Arboretum Assistants will be on hand to answer questions about plants and/or the Arboretum. In addition, a selection of duplicate and redundant books from The Museum's library will be sold at this event.
