Join us for a family-friendly day of fun in downtown Madison, where arts and crafts vendors, garden exhibits, live entertainment and guest speakers provide the activities. Plant vendors will be on hand to help you select plants to stand up to southeastern heat and humidity for your flower, fruit and vegetable gardens. We'll host informal discussions with speakers on various gardening topics. George Sanko, Director of the Native Plant Garden at Georgia Perimeter College will bring some of his preferred plants; David Arnal of the Bee Factory will tell us how to encourage pollinators in our home garden; Morgan County Master Gardener Hilda Chilton will demonstrate proper tomato propagation techniques; and Mimi Maumus, the chef /owner of homemade catering in Athens will demonstrate how to prepare traditional Southern treats from scratch.
