Fundraiser at Bremec on the Heights Garden Center to benefit HRRC

Spring blooms at Bremec.

Never mind the April snow—if the early spring weather has you working on your outside to-do list, the Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC) could benefit from your purchase of lawn and garden supplies.

For the fourth year in a row, Bremec on the Heights Garden Center will donate a portion of every purchase made between April 23 and May 6 to support HRRC—the Cleveland Heights nonprofit working to keep older homes in good repair.

Bremec on the Heights Garden Center is located at 13410 Cedar Road, just west of Taylor Road. From its selection of plants to garden decor and supplies, Bremec on the Heights is geared toward the needs of Heights gardeners and homeowners, and supplies organic alternatives for sustainable gardening, including organic fertilizer and pest control, rain barrels and compost bins.

As an added benefit to gardening enthusiasts—experienced or novice—Bremec will offer free classes on proper plant selection and care. The class schedule is listed on HRRC’s website ( Voucher 2012.pdf), along with vouchers to print out and to use with your Bremec purchase, to ensure that it benefits HRRC. Vouchers will also be available at the registers at Bremec.

Gift cards purchased during the event also benefit HRRC, for shoppers who might prefer to select their plants and supplies at a later date. HRRC volunteers will be at Bremec on weekends (April 28–29 and May 5–6) to answer questions and assist shoppers.
