Annual Garden Party & Sale

March 29, 2014


Elizabeth Zoe croppedHistorically, spring is a time for rebirth and renewal. Here at the ‘Lift, we give new life to old materials… So what better place to celebrate the season?  

Our annual Garden Party & Sale is our largest and longest-running tradition.  Drawing over 1,200 guests last year, it is a crazy and fun-filled day.   

After squirreling away landscaping and garden supplies all winter, we put them all out for sale at once – and eager Forklift Fans start lining up at the gates even before we open at 9am!

Just as exciting are gardening workshops & demonstrations, live music and entertainment, activities for the whole family, and a lemonade lunch with grilled goodies.

We’ll send out more details soon, but mark your calendars now for March 29, 2014, from 9am – 5:30pm!

Need to clean out your garage?


Between now and the end of March, we are piling our warehouse sky-high with great gardening tools, flowerpots, patio decor, and other supplies – and we sure could use your help.
It’s a great excuse to clean out your garage, basement, or shed!  Just drop off your landscaping materials and gardening supplies at Community Forklift any day during store hours.
We’re also offering a convenient alternative for those of you in NW DC and Montgomery County:  
Our friends at American Plant will be accepting your donations this weekend, March 15 & 16, from 12pm – 5pm – and they’re offering a 10% discount to thank you!
You can drop your donations off at either American Plant location:
