Baxter County Master Gardener’s 23nd Annual
2017Spring Gardening Seminar
Saturday, March 11, 2017
First United Methodist Church Fellowship Center
605 W. 6th Street, Mountain Home, AR 72653
Baxter County Master Gardeners are proud to present the 23nd “Developing an Ozark’s Green Thumb” spring gardening seminar.
The seminars have become an area tradition with one presented each spring since the Master Gardener program began in Baxter County in 1994. Speakers have come from all over Arkansas and the surrounding area to share their expertise and experience to help hundreds of attendees learn more about their gardens. We have presented programs on flowers, herbs, vegetables, trees, soil, compost and even the insects, birds and critters who share our Ozark home.
The First United Methodist Church Fellowship Center is the venue for our gardening seminar. Based on last year's feedback, we hope to provide
several improvements that will enhance the overall value of the seminar to those attending. This venue will also enable our speakers to more
easily provide to all attending more information and inspiration for our gardens.
Speakers will include:•Janet Carson - "Changes in Horticulture and the Latest Trends in Gardening"
•Lucinda Reynolds - "Outstanding Plants Through the Seasons"
•Tina Marie Wilcox - Performance: "Widder Wilcox on AR Cabin Gardens of the Past"
There will be a horticultural table, displays of the BCMG Community Garden Projects, an information table with our County
Extension Agent Mark Keaton and more information on becoming a Master Gardener.
We always feature an “opportunity table” full of gardening books and other garden related items. There will be free catalogs and plenty
of garden information to take home and use in your garden.
Seating is limited for the seminar, so be sure to register early. The fee includes lunch.
