Farm Show Exhibit
Every year the Master Gardeners have a booth at the Butler County Farm show. It’s an opportunity to show the public all we do as Master Gardeners. We highlight our demonstration gardens; answer gardening questions; and educate on a variety of topics. We have literature on gardening topics as well as free seeds. We also have applications and information available for those gardeners who may be interested in becoming a Penn State Master Gardener.
“Are you going to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.” These lyrics from Simon and Garfunkel highlight the theme of the 2015 Master Gardener exhibit. We will have gardening handouts available on many subjects, with an emphasis on herb-gardening topics, and displays of various herbs as well as information on how to grow them. In addition to the herb plants, there will be a variety of activities ranging from seed distribution, gardening tips, and culinary ideas to educational materials. Herbal cookies? Come sample them! There will be something for everyone.
Join the Master Gardeners August 9-15 at the Butler Farm Show grounds, Route 68 West.
