Suzanne Ford, MGHC president said, “The Hamilton County Master Gardeners are excited to hold this Spring Garden Festival, our first public event in over a year. We know that people look forward to our annual Garden Expo at Camp Jordan and were disappointed that we were unable to hold it this year. So, we decided to create a one-day outdoor Garden Festival celebrating our natural environment where master gardeners could share their gardening expertise through exhibits and demonstrations. After all, our motto is: We Teach You How.
"In addition, there will be a selection of vendors with plants, trees and shrubs, plus tools, yard art
and other items, as well as activities for children and talks about the plantings around the
historic Bonny Oaks Arboretum. Proceeds from the Spring Garden Festival support our
Scholarship Fund and Community Garden Grants program. We know that many people turned
to gardening during the past year, and we look forward to meeting and teaching many
interested gardeners at our Spring Garden Festival."
