Well I am one of those Master Gardeners who will benefit from it's sale! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We just awarded three $1000 scholarships to HS Seniors entering college in an agricultural or horticultural field. We also buy and donate gardening related books to the local library, sponsor a community garden and any number of other projects related to gardening in our county.

Woohoo!!! Great job - not only on the potting bench, but on awarding scholarships and other activities with the MGs.

Had people tell me yesterday that during the 450 mile long yard sale on US127 in late summer that something like that would go for 500-600 dollars. Should make another one and donate the proceeds to our MG association!!

You would be drawing from a MUCH larger pool of people with MONEY to spend and INTENT to spend it! It would not surprise me to see it go for $500
