Dirt Gardeners – Eisley Nursery Poinsettias
November 17, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Field Trip to Eisley Nursery, Inc.
Program: During the 1930’s, the Great Depression affected so many, creating the necessity for families to find any avenue of supplementing their income.
Henry and Lila Eisley’s house was, and still is, located on Auburn’s Nevada Street. Lila noticed the traffic flowing past her house and saw an opportunity to earn some extra money for her family. Lila’s “homegrown” pansies began the Eisley Nursery. Over the years, the family legacy has been passed on to the successive generations and each decade has brought further expansion.
Today, one of their much anticipated events is their annual poinsettia plant sale. Poinsettias will be found in red, burgundy, red and white, white, orange, pink, variegated, elongated and other variations.
Our own Rhonda DesVoignes told us all last year what gorgeous and long-lasting poinsettias she discovered at Eisley’s Nursery.
