Why Go to the Herb and Succulent Festival in your Wilson Vehicle

Herb & Garden Festival | Wilson GM | Stillwater, OK

The Event

Have you ever thought about starting an herb garden to help liven up your cooking? Or maybe you’ve been meaning to get a few low-maintenance houseplants for your living space? This June, the Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University will provide the perfect opportunity for you to explore each of these hobbies.

On June 8, 2019, the Botanic Garden at OSU will host the Herb and Succulent Festival. This late spring event is a wonderful outing for individuals and families alike. Visitors can expect to learn lots about the care and maintenance of various plants, from tender herbs to hardy succulents. Gather the family in your SUV from Wilson GM and head over the Botanic Garden ready to learn. You might wish to put down an old sheet or towel in the cargo area of your SUV, so you won’t need to worry about dirt and soil when you load in your new plants from the festival.

What To Expect

The festival runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., so grab an early breakfast and head on over. The whole family is sure to enjoy their time at the Herb and Succulent Festival at OSU, where live music will accompany workshops on fun activities like creating a portable herb garden and brewing herbals.

If you need a vehicle to haul your new herbs and succulents, be sure to stop by Wilson GM and explore our vehicle lineup.

Aaron Wilson Makes $10k Donation to Stillwater Public Schools

Donation to Stillwater Public Schools

For decades, Chevrolet has found ways to show its support for its local communities and citizens who are dedicated to improving them. Public education is no doubt one of the most important factors for growth and development in any location. As a gesture of their support to the local Oklahoma schools, Chevrolet and the Wilson Auto Family were able to make a generous donation to Stillwater Public Schools.

 

Aaron Wilson, the president of Chevy Drives Oklahoma and a part of the Wilson Auto Family, announced the donation in a speech at an all-faculty meeting over the summer. It took a phone call to the regional office in Dallas, Texas to suggest that Chevrolet support the local Stillwater Public Schools. They say that “Chevy drives Oklahoma,” but when Chevrolet agreed to donate $10,000 to the Stillwater Public Schools, Wilson could proudly announce that #ChevyDrivesEducation. The Wilson Auto Family is so honored to be part of a movement that supports the local education.

 

Stillwater Public Schools are just one of many public school systems across the state of Oklahoma that will receive money as part of the #ChevyDrivesEducation program. In addition to its donations, Chevy also shows support to education by providing the most affordable prices possible through special discounts to educators.

 

Here at Wilson GM, we are proud to support those who work hard to educate our community.

Stillwater Farmers’ Market

Stillwater Farmers’ Market

Getting the freshest fruits, vegetables, breads, and other produce is only possible at a farmers’ market! The Stillwater Farmers’ Market only allows vendors to sell produce they grew themselves within a limited area. Featuring products at affordable prices, many of which undercut convenience and super stores, there are plenty of reasons to head down to the Stillwater Farmers’ Market.

All produce is 100 percent locally grown, which is better for the environment. Vendors are committed to providing fresh and affordable produce, like fruits, vegetables, beef, eggs, jellies, and much more. You’ll end up with so much produce that you’ll need a full-size SUV, like the GMC Yukon, to move it all!

Located in Strickland Park on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Stillwater Farmers’ Market is open for business until August 30th. Customers can also find the market at the Stillwater Medical Center on Mondays from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. starting on May 1st.

Come fall, the market moves to the Pioneer Square parking lot on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. In winter, the market heads indoors at the Cowboy Mall on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Skip the supermarket and head down to the Stillwater Farmers’ Market for your grocery needs! We here at Wilson GM hope to see you there!
