Common Roots holding garden party for Whittier International School

A garden party is scheduled tonight, March 19, at Common Roots Café to kick off Whittier International School’s annual plant sale.

Starting at 6:30 p.m., attendees can seek advice on their gardens and learn about gardening with kids. Customers will save 5 percent on any plants they order at the party. Desserts, coffee and tea will be provided.

The proceeds from Whittier’s annual plant sale go to benefit the MacPhail School of Music program that operates at Whittier.

This year’s plant sale includes familiar annuals, a selection of hard-to-find native plants, and a wider selection of conventional and heirloom vegetables. Whittier has selected a new grower for this year’s sale. Glacial Ridge Growers highlights perennials that are native to Minnesota.
Common Roots is located at 2558 Lyndale Ave. S.
