2018 Garden Expo

The 2018 Garden Expo is scheduled for April 14th and 15th at Camp Jordan Arena. The Expo Committee is feverishly working to make this the best Expo yet. We are adding new exhibits to the Expo, lining up speakers for our 17 seminars and recruiting nature and garden related vendors to fill the arena. With that said, if you have a favorite nature or gardening related vendor that you would like to see at our Expo, please send their contact information to our vendor committee chairperson and/or encourage the vendor to check this website for the Expo vendor application.

See the Expo website and our Facebook page for more information.

Pictures of the 2017 Expo have been posted to the website and links to our vendors from the 2017 Expo will remain active until the 2018 Expo.
