After 21 years, The Garden Gate, located at Sears, in the Pompano Citi Centre, will be forced to close due to the closing of the Sears store at that location.

The Garden Gate has been a mainstay of sustainable gardening in the area since 1997, specializing in Florida native plants, wildlife attracting plants, aquatic plants, edible plants and noninvasive exotics.

The Sears store will be closing on December 16 and The Garden Gate plans a send-off party with refreshments and free plants on that day.

Until their closing date, The Garden Gate’s store hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday; 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

We, at Natural Awakenings, thank Donna for her love of the holistic and natural, her ever-increasing knowledge and for sharing that information in-person and through her articles in this magazine.
