Another of Ridgefield’s traditions has fallen before the coronavirus.

The Annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale at the Ballard Greenhouse has been canceled due to the threat of the virus and the COVID-19 disease that it causes.

The plant sale on Mother’s Day is organized by garden club members each year, and its proceeds benefit the operations and maintenance of the Ballard Greenhouse, which stands behind Ballard Park near the Ballard Green Housing for the Elderly complex

“Please stay well, and we hope to see you at next year’s sale,” said Laura Barber, one of the event’s organizers.
