|"Thyme for Kids" Plant Sale|
Horticultural Therapy is an important part of what we do at Ozanam. Spending time in the greenhouse gives boys and girls the opportunity to nurture living things and develop a sense of accomplishment watching their plants flourish. All things grow with love!
Each year at the end of April, Ozanam's "Thyme for Kids" Annual Plant Sale features a variety of plants and flowers grown by the children in our on-campus greenhouse as part of the Horticultural Therapy Program. This sale is open to the public, and all proceeds benefit the Horticultural Therapy Program at Ozanam. You can find a little bit of everything at the annual plant sale including annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and more!
Mark your calendars for the 2014 "Thyme for Kids" Plant Sale:
The sale will be held inside the greenhouse at Ozanam, which is located just off Holmes Road at 421 E. 137th Street; Kansas City, MO 64145. Visitors are welcome to park anywhere on our campus. To reach the greenhouse, simply follow the asphalt path near our gymnasium in the center of campus. Signs will help direct you to the greenhouse and garden area. Volunteers from the Kansas City Young Matrons will be available during the event, and our Horticultural Therapist Megan Sperry will also be available to answer questions about any of the plants. Students from Ozanam will be on-hand to assist customers as well.
Thanks especially to everyone who helped make the 2013 Plant Sale the best ever. With the support of volunteers and community friends, we were able to raise more than $16,000 for the Horticulture Therapy Program at Ozanam!
