Gardener's Supply Plastic Pot Take Back Day

Date: Saturday, June 24 from 10am - 3:00pm
Location: Gardener's Supply Garden Centers
Event Description: Passionate about taking care of the planet? Your local Gardener's Supply Garden Center is hosting a Plastic Take Back Day event

Black plastic used for gardening purposes cannot be recycled by most waste haulers throughout the US. Gardener’s Supply has partnered with Prides Corner Farms for a one-day event where community members may return their #2 and #5 plastic pots free of charge. Any size, any color!

Pots must be separated into groups: #2 plastics in one group and #5 plastics in another. All pots MUST be empty with no tags or trash, please shake or rinse the dirt out and remove all tags and staples.

Passionate about taking care of the planet? We’re looking for volunteers to help with this event. Please RSVP to Volunteer Here

We are offering the following volunteer shifts:

  • 9:00AM – 10:00AM

  • 10:00AM – 12:00PM

  • 12:00PM – 2:00PM

  • 2:00PM – 4:00PM

Circus Smirkus

Circus Smirkus is hitting the road again this summer and our big top tour is coming to Hanover! 

Special discounted pricing for groups of 15 or more guests.

Here are the dates and showtimes for Hanover at Fullington Farm Field, Hanover, NH.

Standard ticket pricing is $35 for adults (ages 13+) and $20 for children (ages 2-12). A ticket service fee of $3.50 per ticket also applies. 

However, we have special discounted pricing available to groups of 15 or more guests. Discounted pricing is $33 for adults and $18 for children. We also waive the $3.50 per ticket convenience fee for a total savings of $5.50 per ticket.

And if you can join us on a weekday matinee, we have even better pricing for you: 

  • 15 to 50 guests: $18 per ticket (all ages)
  • 51 to 100 guests: $17 per ticket (all ages)
  • 101+ guests: $16 per ticket (all ages)

We also waive the $3.50 per ticket convenience fee.

In addition to discounted pricing, you'll also enjoy:

  • Purchasing tickets before they go on sale to the general public.
  • Reserved seating.
  • Early admittance into the tent.

Please note:

  • Methods of payment accepted are credit cards and checks. 
  • Once we have gathered all details and have your verbal confirmation, we will hold your tickets for two weeks while we finalize payment. Once payment has been made, you will receive an email confirmation of the order.
  • All ticket sales are final and we do not offer refunds.
  • If availability permits, you may add tickets to your order.
  • We ask that groups arrive up to one hour prior to showtime (and no later than 30 minutes prior to showtime), so that we may get you seated and situated before the tent opens to the general public.

Let me know what questions you may have!

We hope to see you under the big top this summer!
