On May 3rd, Landscape Ontario held its first public garage sale to benefit Conservation Halton.

All staff at the Milton site (Landscape Ontario, Canadian Nursery Landscape Association, Ontario Parks Association and Vanden Bussche Irrigation) were asked to bring in items for the sale, in addition to the many items for sale from the LO greenhouse. Old filing cabinets, desks and tables, as well as books, toys and tools were sold from the greenhouse area.

Despite the threat of rain, initial sales were good. Organizers held a sale the following Saturday in an effort to sell off the remaining items.

Leftover items will be donated to local charities and Landscape Ontario will donate $650 to Conservation Halton.
