For decades, Susan and Rich Eyre have participated in what they call “philplanthropy.” The owners of Rich’s Foxwillow Pines Nursery in Woodstock, Illinois have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Heifer International by selling hosta plants. They’ll be back at it later this month when they host a hosta and arts and craft sale benefiting Heifer and Mano a Mano International Partners on Saturday, August 24. First, they join us to talk about what drives them and what they’ve accomplished.
