It is a 20-year tradition – the Annual Plant Sale at St. Matthews United Church on Plains Road.

They are not about to let a pandemic shut them down.
The event has been re-branded and is now a “Drive-through Plant Sale”

Plant sate CORRECT

As usual, they will take Pre-orders now, paid for and picked up the first part of May, when the orders will be brought out and put in the trunks for people as they drive up. “Our way of living may have changed, but people will need to be in their gardens by that time for therapy and we at St. Matthews are adaptable. However, due to maintaining distance, this year there won’t be any sales on the day of pickup.  You place your order, pay in advance and pick them up” advised Connie Price.

If you don’t have a computer or on-line access drop off your order, with a cheque please, at the Church’s outside Mail-box on dates as shown on the flyer.

Deadline for Orders is April 12th.

The response to the Pre-paid Drive-through hands off Pick-up method has been very positive.

Thank you for sharing or ordering for yourself and stay safe.

    Thank you for publicizing that our Annual Plant Sale will continue to be “Annual”, just held differently this year, being cognoscente of ‘safe personal distance’ rules.
    I would like to make one correction to the headline and in the article though. We are the Anglican Church on Plains Road!
    It gets confusing enough having 2 United Churches on that small stretch of Aldershot, with out us being included. We all work together for the benefit of Aldershot and beyond residents, through the Out4Lunch Program, advertising each other’s activities and occasionally enjoy a combined Service, while keeping our own special rituals and religious practices.
    The community has certainly come together in support of the Drive-through Drop-off FOOD BLITZ on St. Matthews front driveway EVERY MONDAY & WEDNESDAY, 12-3pm, gathering food to take to the Burlington Food Bank for their Food Hampers, which they deliver to the front doors of isolated people. Burlington residents are caring and awesome!
