You’ve heard of farm-to-table produce, but members of the Greensburg Garden Center go from yard to table for their annual Christmas Ornament Sale.
Most of the fresh greens that will be available, along with decorative touches like pine cones and dried flowers that are added to items for sale, come from members’ yards.
The sale is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Greensburg Garden & Civic Center, 951 Old Salem Road.
“We cut our own vegetables,” said GGC co-chair Carla Rusnica. “The pine cones are picked in our gardens or during our travels. You can’t get any cooler than this.
Items for sale include individually decorated artificial trees 2-6.5 feet tall, pre-made wreaths, topiaries, ornaments, lanterns, painted wood cutouts and other items, from whimsical to formal. .

Greensburg Garden Center co-chair Carla Rusnica decorates a tree for the centre’s Christmas sale from December 3-4.
Creations are made by members in a workshop filled with ribbons, bows, ornaments and more that have been donated, purchased or collected over the years.
“We have tiny things to giant things,” said sales president Nadine Mason.
New for this year are small snowman ornaments in gold gift boxes.
Fresh greens include more wreaths, garlands, baskets, pine ropes, and kissing balls.
“The baskets are very popular,” said Rusnica. “They are so popular that we cannot make them quickly enough. ”
The baskets are filled with various greens and are embellished with assorted pine cones, colorful balls and a large bow.
Prices start at just a few dollars for small items, Rusnica said.
“Everything is at a good price,” she said. “We only have two days to sell and we don’t want anything more. ”
Fresh greens can also be pre-ordered by calling the garden center office at 724-837-0245.
