Plant Sale inspection and fee information
from Judy Sheets, FGCM President
This is official from Dr. John Hagler, head of the MDA, do not pay the plant license. At my suggestion, our state organization is going to pay a yearly fee for a license "umbrella" that will cover all clubs in our organization. No club will pay the $25 fee for each plant sale. All clubs will submit the date and location of their plant sale to our state, we will give the list to MDA, and they may or may not come to the sale to check plants for bugs, disease, and bio-terrorism. Dr. Hagler is right now writing this new amendment to the plant law to cover not-for-profit organizations.
I spent the afternoon on the phone working this out. I assured him that our federation has no objection to our plants being examined. We have protected our state since 1935 and will continue to do so.
