The American Red Cross and Bates Nursery Celebrate Earth Day

Donors Receive Earth Day Prize Pack!

This Earth Day, The American Red Cross Tennessee Valley Region and Bates Nursery of Nashville are working together to help Middle Tennesseans go green!

Blood is medicine’s most vital natural resource. Show your passion to protect our planet by rolling up your sleeves. Every donor who comes to the center on Charlotte Avenue in Nashville on Saturday, April 21 will receive an Earth Day Prize Pack, while supplies last.

Prizes include, “I Love to Play in the Dirt” t-shirts, “EarthMix®” top soil for your garden, packets of seeds, organic fertilizer packets, and nursery containers.

Blood donations are needed every day for traumas, heart surgeries, joint-replacement surgeries, organ transplants, premature babies, leukemia and cancer treatments, and much more. One blood donation can help save up to three lives.

The Nashville Donor Center located at 2201 Charlotte Ave. is open Saturday April 21 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please make an appointment by calling 1-800- RED CROSS

Bates Nursery is also pleased to announce, “An Introduction to Vertical Gardening”, presented by Brent Grunfield of Imperial Nurseries. Brent will discuss and answer questions on gardening’s newest sensation. Imagine creating beauty on a wall where you have no other opportunity for gardening. Vertical gardening gives you a wide variety of plants to choose from; a creative way to decorate with plants. Learn about stretching your garden to new dimensions…and, you no longer have to be vertically challenged, at least not in the garden!

This will be a most interesting session and I know you don’t want to miss out. Contact Sara Bates to reserve your seat. Remember, all events in The GreenRoom are free to BatesRewards members, but seating is limited: sarabates@batesnursery.com 615.876.1014.

We have received many new items this week, too many to mention. Let it suffice to say we have many larger sizes of many items for containers you are preparing to plant. If patience is not your forte, we have items for planting with instant gratification assured.

Celebrate Earth Day by giving the gift of life and enjoying the life you have in the garden!
