This is a Free Event and Open to the Public!
Plans are coming together for Garden Faire on Sept. 20 at Loose Park.
Garden Faire is a fall festival for gardeners. It is a daylong event featuring:
- Gardening programs by gardening and horticultural experts from affiliate organizations of Gardeners Connect.
- A chance to talk with members of the affiliate clubs and perhaps purchase items from them.
- Children’s activities.
- A chance to buy used gardening books. Gardeners Connect has moved its now annual used garden book sale to be part of Garden Faire.
A tent has been reserved to be erected in front of the Garden Center at Loose Park. Under the striped big top there will be chairs and a large TV screen set up for digital slide shows and demonstrations. That is where a lineup of programs drawing on the expertise of the affiliate organizations of Gardeners Connect.
Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 20. The programs are planned to start at 9 a.m., changing every half hour until 4 p.m.
Inside the Garden Center, affiliate organizations will have tables in the Rose Room upstairs where the public can find out more about each organization taking part.
“The Garden Faire is a great opportunity for gardeners in the metro area to experience the great diversity of the Kansas City horticulture community,” said Judy Penner, director of Loose Park. “This event will be a must-see for gardeners interested in all aspects of gardening.”
