Join the Macon County Master Gardeners for a unique and fun day of horticulture programs. Choose from 12 hands-on or classroom-style sessions that both beginning and expert gardeners will enjoy.

Keynote speaker Melinda Myers is a certified arborist and horticulturalist, with more than 30 years of experience in the industry. Whether you are interested in container gardening or raised beds, indoor or holiday plants, pests or weeds, shrubs or roses, Melinda has answers for you! Melinda’s books will be available for purchase and signing after her session.

Be sure to stop by the Ask a Master Gardener desk to get answers for all your horticulture questions. Garden novelties will be available for purchase from a variety of vendors during the event to help prepare for spring planting.
