Secrest Arboretum Plant, Art Sale is May 7

April 20, 2011

WOOSTER, Ohio – Secrest Arboretum’s 18th annual Plant Discovery Day takes place May 7 at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC), 1680 Madison Ave., Wooster. Hours are 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

The popular event is a plant and art sale featuring hard-to-find trees, shrubs, herbs, annuals and perennials, with proceeds benefitting the arboretum’s programs, including its tornado renewal fund. A tornado last fall leveled about 30 of the arboretum’s 120 acres, with replanting efforts still continuing.
