NEW LOCATION FOR 2014! This year's Plant Fest & Sale on Saturday, May 17, 2014, will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Cumberland County Service Center's Penn State Extension office, 310 Allen Road, Carlisle, PA 17013.
Look for the big tents outside on the lawn filled with plants, and visit the Master Gardeners' Allen Road Gardens. The Master Gardeners will have gardening displays and information, a plant clinic to answer your gardening questions, and a gardeners' yard sale.
There will also be local beekeepers, service organizations, and plant societies offering educational displays and information, and the 4-H Horse & Pony Club will be selling their "black gold" buckets of composted horse manure.
Plant Fest serves as one of the main fundraisers for the Master Gardener program in Cumberland County to fund its educational outreach programs and activities.
