ECS’s annual Spring Flower & Plant Sale is back in time for Mother’s Day and Spring planting with a bonus this year – contactless curbside pickup! Annual bedding flowers, a variety of beautiful hanging baskets, and patio planters will be available from the same vendor that Phipps Conservatory uses. We are also offering organic vegetable and herb seedlings from Grow Pittsburgh.
Due to overwhelming demand, we are unable to accept any more orders. We apologize for any inconvenience! Another way to help the sale is to volunteer for the distribution on May 8 here: Plant Sale Volunteers
Plants will be available for contactless curbside pick up ONLY: Friday, May 8, 2020 between 1:00pm and 6:00pm at the ECS INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL (829 Milton Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15218). There will only be one day to pick up the plants so please mark this day on your calendar. Your online order confirmation may list your address as the “shipping address,” but plants will not be shipped. All plants must be picked up on May 8. We ask that you pull up to the curb in front of the school, stay in your car, inform the volunteer of your name through your car window, and pop your trunk. The volunteer will load your items into your trunk.
Please note that this year no additional plants will be available for sale the day of pick up.
Lots of volunteers are needed on May 8 to pull this off! We have designed a safety plan to ensure compliance with government orders and to keep our valued volunteers safe. See more details on the sign-up sheet. Sign up here.
Proceeds of sales will go toward purchasing and delivering books for students and families who primarily use classroom libraries at school and cannot access needed materials during the COVID-19 school closure.
