A spring fundraiser is the event that allows us to bring our environmental contributions to fruition. Club members donate plants from their own gardens, bake homemade goodies, create garden-related crafts and donate “shabby chic” items to sell at the annual event. It provides us with the funding for member and community education through guest speakers and outings and allows us to purchase plants and trees for community parks and sanctuaries.

Most years the event had been held in the lobby of the Waukesha State Bank in downtown Waukesha. Since 2002, an expanded effort has made it necessary to hold the event at the E. B. Shurts Environmental Education Center at the Fox River Sanctuary. We are very grateful to all those who contribute to the Spring City Garden Club and, through it, to community beautification and environmental awareness, by attending and supporting our spring fundraiser.

Watch for it, typically the Saturday after Memorial Day. The 2019 fundraiser will be held on June 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
