Join us as we gather to celebrate the start of another planting season. Member appreciation and learning/sharing are the themes of the 
day. Knowledgeable members will be manning the nursery display areas and will be ready to assist with plant selection. Bring your questions, your garden plans, and your curiosity. Bring your friends too!
