PICA :: Peace Through Interamerican Community Action DONATE NOW

PICA Calendar

What's happening at PICA?

Congratulations to you, us and PICA for running this sale for 25 years, for gardening, and for all that organizing for peace and power in community alliances !! Our first sale was on a sidewalk. In 2002 we topped out at 1586 plants. Over the years many PICA supporters have beautified their gardens through this annual plant sale to benefit Power in Community Alliances. The PICA sale features many of our lovely friends, the native perennials. Our catalog includes about 40 native-to-Eastern North America plants, 20 of which are native to Maine. So, as the days get longer and the weather starts warming up it's time to think about this year's garden.  Whether you are adding to your exsisting garden or are new to the gardening scene we can help.  Click here to check out this year's catalog.  You will be glad you did.  You can call or email us with any questions you might have.   207-947-4203 or info@pica.ws.  Thanks for taking a peek!

PICA is a grassroots organization in Bangor, Maine. For nearly 25 years we have been building grassroots community alliances that address global problems of economic justice, human and worker rights. Our work is grounded in careful listening, telling and sharing stories. Our goal is to transform both individuals and institutions.

We have helped make Maine a leader among all states in addressing the effects of the global economy on our own lives.
