Plant sale benefiting food bank

Plant saleRiverbend Farms co-owner John Hotchkiss watered the plants he had for sale outside of No Frills just north of Aylmer on Thursday, July 17. He and his wife Eva were holding the sale to raise money for Aylmer Corner Cupboard food bank. A wide variety of evergreens, perennials, shrubs and other potted plants were available for $5 each from Thursday, July 17 to Saturday July 19. Plant sales each day would be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mrs. Hotchkiss said they hoped to raise over $5,000. Riverbend Farms was winding down its retail and large scale growing operations but the couple were pursuing other, smaller “hobby” interests on the properties they own near Mount Salem and Richmond.
