AR River Valley Lawn and Garden ShowMarch 17, 2019
8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
The theme for the 2019 show is “Small Gardens.” Everyone can grow a garden no matter how small their space. Small gardens can make a big impact on the environment and wildlife preservation. Since 1994 the River Valley Master Gardeners and the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Arkansas sponsor this event as a garden exposition with demonstrations, vendor booths and expert speakers. Education of the public about gardening, landscaping, and other horticulture topics is the primary purpose of the Lawn and Garden Show. This year we will present three days of seminars and demonstrations on a wide variety of topics, including Landscaping Small Yards, Straw Bale Gardening, Composting, Companion Plants, Rose Pruning, Flower Arranging, Plant Propagation, Fire Ants, gophers and moles, Yoga for Gardening Health – presented by Terri Hargrove from Yogaterrium, Canning 101, and How to Interpret your Soil Test. We have an impressive line-up of speakers, including Berni Kurz, the new University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension horticulture specialist and the coordinator of the Arkansas Master Gardener program. He is the former Staff Chair of the Washington County Cooperative Extension Office in Fayetteville. In addition to a welcome from newly-elected Mayor George McGill, several vendors will showcase the newest and best garden products; many area non-profit organizations will be represented, and there will be a Silent Auction.
Admission: $5 for a 3-day ticket.
