Finally, a yard sale for green-thumbed Atlantans

Trees Atlanta is holding its 12th annual tree sale fundraiser Oct. 8 at its headquarters in Reynoldstown. But this year's event won't just be a basic tree sale. No, sir. In addition to offering more than 1,000 dogwood, elms, bald cypress, crape myrtles, yellow flowering magnolias, an American wisteria called 'Amethyst Falls', American hazelnut, dwarf tulip-poplar, five varieties of silver bells, and 19 varieties of oak … um, what was I talking about? Oh, yeah — in addition to selling a buttload of trees, the good folks at Trees Atlanta will also be throwing a wingding of sorts:

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., there will be music by Smokey's Farmhouse Band, beverages from Honest Tea, tree care demonstrations, speakers, a small petting zoo of sheep by Ewe-niversally Green, and much more, including opportunities to learn about the components of a LEED-certified building.

That's right, people: much more! Actually, if you've never checked out TA's Kendeda Center offices, it's worth a visit — if only to see a nonprofit organization where the employees don't have to use cardboard boxes for desks, write on paper salvaged from recycling bins and work by candlelight.

Anyway, the location is 225 Chester Ave., off Memorial Drive and just west of the Beltline.

NOTE: An earlier version of this post contained a major brain fart that named the wrong date.
