Carbondale spring plant sale brings out May gardeners

Larry and Susan Raby, honored Carbondale supporters.

The 9th annual Carbondale flower and plant sale benefited a local equine rescue organization and the fire department, and also recognized a couple of longtime community supporters.

The sale was held at the Carbondale fire station Sunday, May 3, 2020. There were many choices of annual flowers, vegetables, hanging baskets, planters, and succulents, along with a truck full of compost from B&C Equine Rescue for gardens.

The event also recognized local volunteers Susan and Larry Raby. Susan organizes the Carbondale Community Garden, and she supports Carbondale in many ways with several organizations. Susan and Larry were recognized for their commitment to making Carbondale the best it can be.

Plant sales benefited B&C Equine Rescue and the fire department. Organizers reported a huge turnout for the sale, and everyone commented on how excited they were to work in their yards and gardens. Social distancing was practiced; many wore masks; tables were spread far apart.
