The Spring Plant Sale is the main fundraiser for the Piedmont chapter. Money raised enables our chapter to support our program co-sponsor, the JC Raulston Arboretum. In addition, plant sale funds allow us to host chapter programs, featuring outstanding, nationally known speakers such as Hans Hansen of Walter’s Gardens and Panayoti Kelaidis of Denver Botanic Gardens, as well as internationally known speakers through the NARGS traveling speaker program.
