We reported couple of times in the past about the Garden Gate Shop in the Missouri Botanical Garden (check here and here), which is taking part in our bookstores program. The store's wonderful staff has been extremely creative and effective in finding ways to promote our partnership. And now they're celebrating an important milestone: The sale of the 1000th Eco-Libris sticker! The 1000th sticker was sold yesterday by Sheena (in the photo above), who is also holding the store's all time record - she sold 503 stickers!
We would like to thank Sheena and the rest of the Garden Gate Shop's great staff for their wonderful work, their dedication and commitment to supporting the environment!
And of course, we invite you all to visit this beautiful botanical garden (it's the nation's oldest botanical garden) and the shop. The Garden Gate Shop is a great place to find plants, garden accessories, home furnishings, merchandise... and books on related subjects.
The Missouri Botanical Garden is conveniently located off I-44, and is easily accessible from the major highways in the area.4344 Shaw Boulevard, St. Louis, MO 63110. Automated events hotline: (314) 577-9400, 1-800-642-8842.
