From Chieftains’ Facebook page. Be ready for a different type of sale this spring.

 

The Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home annual Herb & Plant Sale will switch to an online format because of the current health crisis. The sale will be held as an online, pre-order event.

Sale Chair Susan Hortman and her team of volunteers are choosing a limited selection of beautiful locally sourced plants that will be available for purchase through the Chieftains Museum website. To participate in the sale, follow these steps:

Visit the museum’s website at www.chieftainsmuseum.org and choose plants for your spring gardens or containers beginning Friday, March 28– Friday, April 3.  You may order your plants three different ways—by ordering through the website and paying with PayPal, calling the museum to order and pay by phone with credit or debit card at (706) 291-9494, or emailing your order to  chieftainsplantsaleorders@gmail.com then mailing a check made to Chieftains Museum to P.O. Box 373, Rome, GA 30162.

The deadline to order plants is Friday April 3.

Pick-up for plants will be held at the Community Building of the Coosa Valley Fairgrounds from 3-7 p.m. on Thursday, April 9, and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Friday, April 10. For safety reasons, please don’t get out of your car; drive through our pick-up line and plants will be loaded into your car.
