Due to the many garden events this weekend–the plant sale at Campos Community Garden and a plant giveaway at Battery Park on Saturday, and on Sunday a community butterfly event at El Jardin del Paraiso and a celebration at Albert’s Garden–along with the projected weather forecast for rain the entire weekend, we have decided to postpone the Dias y Flores Annual Plant Sale to Saturday May, 20 from 11 AM to 5 PM.

We hope to see you on the 20th!
