What Exhibitors Need To Know


Idea Gardens and Community Recognition for Organizations & Individuals

Organizations & individuals will again create small garden vignettes using containerized plantings, furniture, paving, and accessories. Each themed area may be focused on a specific type of plant or garden activity. Fair visitors will see landscape ideas and decorations that can be used in their own backyards.

Special contests for school gardens & landscaping are also available. Information on each garden choosing to exhibit should be shown through drawings, photos & information presented in an attractive display.

Community Awards will reward schools and community groups which have created or enhanced a public space during the previous year. Each project display is judged on design and workmanship, as well as evaluation of the actual project as shown by the exhibit & materials displayed. We are proud to showcase the work of these creative volunteers who add beauty and interest in our County.
