Arboretum Nets $20,000 Windfall At Plant Sale

Posted 9/10/2013

Dyck Arboreutm of the Plains hosted a successful Fall Plant Sale from Sept. 4 through 8.

According to Director Scott Vogh, the sale brough in nearly $20,000.

“That amount is similar to previous fall sales.  Our plant sales (spring and fall) are the largest native plants sales in the state and they are the largest fundraising events that we host each year,” he said.

Vogt said Hesstonians should be encouraged by the plant sale, which brings hundreds of visitors to the community.

“This fall nearly 500 people attended our sale and purchased nearly 4,000 plants,” he said.  

Vogt said the funds will be put toward the mission of the Arboretum.

“The funds will be used to underwrite the arboretum and its mission to promote through education and stewardship, the conservation and use of plants native and adaptable to Kansas,” he said.
