Each landscape will feature innovative, unique, and sustainable gardening trends, themes, and strategies that attendees can use to transform their own yard, garden, or backyard into an outdoor oasis. A few of the themes and topics that attendees will discover include:

Extension Master Gardeners and homeowners will be present at each garden to answer your questions.

In addition to the tour, several local artists will be painting landscape scenes from the gardens en plein air. Watch as they capture the beauty of the garden.

Conservation Tales, a children’s book series that educates young readers on wildlife conservation, will be available for purchase at the Serenity Garden. Attendees can also receive a free black gum and bald cypress tree seedling (while supplies last) and be entered into a drawing to win one of several great garden prizes.
