Buck Jones Nursery is helping to grow the Elm Street Cultural Arts Village as part of their Gardeners Helping the Community program.

Tommy Nobis III of Buck Jones recently presented a check for $2,440 to the organization.

A $25 membership fee provides a member with special offers and discounts at Buck Jones and 80 percent of that $25 membership goes directly to Elm Street as a donation, according to Gay Grooms, founding artistic director of Elm Street.

The nursery is located at 7470 Hickory Flat Highway in Woodstock, on a 20-acre facility established in 1993. They offer a complete line of all nursery stock, trees, shrubs, sod grass and hard-line supplies.

“With our gardens and event green on the four acre Downtown Woodstock site under development,” said Elm Street and GROW Board Member Pat Tanner, “this is an ideal partnership. We’re so thankful for their support in 2013 and look forward to next year’s membership program with great anticipation.”

G. Lora Grooms, Elm Street Founding Artistic Director, says she too is pleased about the effort.

“We were thrilled when Mr. Nobis contacted us about this program and very pleased with the result,” said Grooms, “As a 501c3 nonprofit, every dollar helps and we’re so honored they thought enough of our organization to let us be a part of their Gardeners Helping the Community program.”
