Richmond nursery gives charity a good start by Michelle Hopkins

Gary Lewis at Richmond's Phoenix Perennials is at it again!

He's hosting another one of his Charity Shopping Weekends. When you go into one of the largest nurseries in the Lower Mainland, with more than 2,500 perennials in stock, and make a botanical purchase, the store will donate 25 per cent to benefit the HomeStart Foundation.

Here's how it works: Come shopping on Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. When you pay for your plants, tell them that you've come to support the HomeStart Foundation and they'll donate 25 per cent of the price of your plants (or gift certificates) to the nonprofit foundation. But remember: You must tell them why you have come to the nursery on that day or they won't know to donate the proceeds from your sale.

Phoenix Perennials is located at 3380 No. 6 Rd. For more information, phone 604-708-9556.

HomeStart Foundation is a nonprofit organization that redistributes safe, clean, functional furniture in a professional, dignified manner, from those who want to share to those who are truly in need. To find out more, visit
