Learning for Life: Tree sale fundraiser on tap

The sun is shining, the snow has melted and it’s time once again to announce the Annual Spring 4-H Tree Sale.

Each year approximately 400-500 tree-roots are purchased, shipped to Alaska, sorted and resold by Kenai Peninsula District 4-H members, all in an effort to raise much-need scholarship and local 4-H program funding.

This year’s sale will be held on May 17 at the Soldotna Creek Park next to Don Jose’s Restaurant. The sale will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Those wishing to buy trees should plan on lining up early as this sale has a history of selling out fast! Trees are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis and there will be no pre-order or pre-sale of trees.

Each year individual 4-H clubs have also provided birdhouses, pastries, cookies, hot drinks and other interesting item for customers to consider.

For more information about this year’s list of available trees, please visit: http://www.alaska4h.org/annual-4-h-tree-sale.html
