In The Garden – Sanibel’s Retail Garden Center and Outdoor Showroom has planted a spirit tree that benefits local non-profits. The Olive tree was chosen because it represents love and charity. Spirit tree donations from January 1-31 will benefit Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW).
Canvas spirit tree tags can be purchased at the garden center gift shop for $5.00. Purchasers can write well-wishes or blessings on the tags and attach them to the tree. All tag sales will be donated to CROW and In The Garden will match all tag sales.
CROW is a teaching hospital and visitor education center dedicated to saving wildlife through state-of-the-art veterinary care, research, education and conservation medicine.
“Each year, the number of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife CROW cares for continues to rise with more than 5,000 patients representing more than 200 species admitted to the wildlife hospital in 2019,” said Lisa Walsh, owner of R.S. Walsh Landscaping and In The Garden. “CROW’s hospital is one of the nation’s leading rehabilitation facilities for native and migratory wildlife.”
