Join us in celebrating those stories, and in creating a few of your own, at the Rare Plant Auction®.  Proceeds help TheDCH to plant trees, build community gardens and enhance public green spaces across Delaware. You don’t need to have a green thumb, just an interest in the environment and, of course, an appreciation for a good story."
