Are you ready for all the garden goodies?

The Garden Party is here!

This week was a snowy start to the season, but we’re still ready to Get Our Spring On tomorrow with all you Forklift Fans! Tonight is Garden Party Eve, and just like every other year, our Salvage Superheroes are busy sorting, pricing, and merchandising all the gardening goodies that will be available tomorrow!

As you’re planning your day tomorrow, remember:

  • Bring your friends and family to join in the fun: live music, yummy food, free gardening workshops, lots of local vendors and experts, plus a lot more Forklift fun!
  • Wear your Garden Party finery for a chance to win the costume contest and to show your spring spirit!
  • We begin selling garden tools & supplies at 9am, however we know this Saturday is extremely busy with important events. Planning for our annual fundraiser begins months in advance and involves many partners and volunteers, so unfortunately we were not able to move it by the time the March for Our Lives was confirmed. We know many gardeners are disappointed, so keep in mind we will be putting more supplies out throughout the day – and anything not sold before we close at 6pm will be available on Sunday while supplies last.
  • Proceeds support our work to create green jobs, reduce waste, educate the public about reuse, and provide free supplies to nonprofits and neighbors in need.

We can’t wait to see you here!

Don’t miss you last chance to vote us Best Green Business!

Contest rules changed this year, and it means your vote carries a lot more weight. Because we serve a lot of low-income and older folks, many of our Forklift Fans don’t have social media accounts, which means they can’t vote this year. So if you are on social media, it’s especially important that you vote! Voting ends at midnight on Sunday, March 4th – so don’t wait!

JUST SCROLL DOWN TO “BEST GREEN BUSINESS” AND WRITE US IN!

City Paper readers have awarded us a “Best of DC” title every year since 2010! And every year, it means valuable free publicity for our nonprofit program. As more homeowners & contractors learn about us, more of them will donate, more materials will be kept out of the landfill, more folks can afford repairs, we’ll be able to create more green jobs, and you’ll find even more amazing stuff here
in the store!
