We especially need plants that tolerate full sun, high heat and drought, since many of the church's flower beds receive full sun all day long. If you are willing to donate a plant, please contact Hilary Terland. If you need help digging, please contact Hilary Terland. Now is the time to mark any plants that you would be willing to donate.
