Home gardeners of all ages and skill levels are invited to this year’s Fall Garden Festival on Saturday, October 26th from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at 1900 W. Thomas Road in Phoenix. Admission is free.
The Fall Garden Festival offers affordable plants grown by master gardeners who are happy to share their expertise. In addition to the plant sale, the Fall Garden Festival features a rummage sale, how-to workshops on topics like 10 Steps to a Successful Vegetable Garden as seen on YouTube, gardening-related vendors, and the first Home Gardeners Do It With Plants contest.
To enter the contest, submit the photos that best represent your Maricopa County home garden in one of three categories — Desert, Flower, or Vegetable — by October 16, 2013. Instructions for pinning entries on Pinterest are available on the Fall Garden Festival Pinterest board, <http://www.pinterest.com/abowlinglane/fall-garden-festival-2013-phoenix-arizona/> or entries may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A panel of master gardeners will select one winner in each category based on garden form and function. All entries will be featured on Pinterest. The three winning entries will be featured on the Maricopa County Master Gardeners’ Facebook page, and the three winners will each receive one 30-minute phone consultation with a master gardener.
