Bloom Festival, Annual Plant Sale & Raffle Coming Up

Need plants? The Power of Flowers and Garden Club have them

Rather than going to a big-box store, there are several opportunities to buy plants locally and support organizations that keep Tewksbury beautiful.

The Power of Flowers Project Bloom Festival is Saturday, May 13, 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Grow Greenhouses, located on the Tewksbury Hospital grounds. The event is in time for Mother’s Day and offers a wide variety of annuals, perennials and locally created artisan gifts. There will be a food truck and a chance to win a $250 Mahoney’s gift card. Learn more.

This event is the one of PoF’s largest fundraisers. Attendees will find colorful annuals, hearty perennials and beautiful handmade items. All funds raised from this event will help continue the important work of bringing smiles to those living in care facilities in our community.

The Power of Flowers Project is a 501-c-3 charitable organization established in 2009 with a mission to share hope and happiness by providing a kind connection to seniors and veterans in care communities, and those who receive Meals on Wheels. Dedicated volunteers repurpose donated flowers into small, individual bouquets and deliver them to provide an unexpected moment of joy to a vulnerable population.

The Tewksbury Garden Club’s annual plant sale will be on Saturday, May 20 at the Library from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you are looking for affordable annuals, perennials and vegetables, get there early.

The Garden Club will sell a variety of hardy, locally grown annual and perennial plants as well as herbs, tomatoes and vegetables. There will also be a free kids’ planting activity. You can pay by cash or credit card. 

In addition, the Friends of the Tewksbury Library and Garden Club will offer raffle baskets, and you can drop off needed items for the Tewksbury Community Pantry.

Plant sale proceeds help support our town gardens, scholarships and various community groups.
