APRIL 26th, 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

On Saturday, April 26th, the Hope Valley North Neighborhood Association is again sponsoring a Spring Fling Plant Sale.  On that morning there will also be neighbors having their own yard sales!  As well, the HVNNA Youth Association (YA) will be conducting a yard sale to raise funds for their activities.  Contributions to the YA’s sale are very welcome

 The Plant Sale will be held in Shelly Place and will feature hundreds of plants of various kinds.  The Youth Association yard sale will also be in Shelly Place. The other neighbors’ yard sales will be held in the sponsoring neighbors’ yards.  All will begin at 7:00 a.m. and continue until 11:00 a.m.  Maps will be provided to locate the yard sales.

At 9:00 a.m., two Master Gardeners from the Durham County Center of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension will set up shop in Shelly Place. You may remember the Master Gardeners from the National Night Out festival last August. In addition to their expert gardening advice and loads of useful information, the Master Gardeners will be distributing soil sample kits.  These soil sample kits provide containers and directions for taking samples from a number of places in your yard and/or garden.  The samples will then be tested For Free by the Extension.  You will receive the results of the test, instructions from the Extension about how to interpret the test results, and what corrective action needs to be taken, if any.  The Master Gardeners will be “open for business” until 11:30 a.m.  

You won’t want to miss this great event!!  And tell your neighbors and friends to come and participate!  We want to see you there!  The neighborhood will be hopping!!
