Saturday June 3 & Sunday June 4
This weekend, a truly fabulous Vancouver-area nursery, Phoenix Perennials, will donate 25% of sales to the HomeStart Foundation. Phoenix Perennials is a mecca for local plant-lovers, inspiring inspiring many, and causing more than a few to rack up the Visa. At least this weekend I can say, “But sweetie, it’s for charity.”
HomeStart Foundation’s mission is to redistribute safe, clean, functional furniture in a professional, dignified manner, from those who want to share to those who are truly in need (while keeping anything worthy from ending up in a landfill). They provide furniture to people who have been homeless, with the goal of helping them achieve self-sufficiency, self-esteem, and long-term stability.
