Fall Garden Festival 2013

This year’s Fall Garden Festival will be from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, at Metro Tech High School, 1900 W. Thomas Road, in Phoenix. The yearly festival is put on by The University of Arizona Cooperative Extension of Maricopa County Master Gardener program and the high school.

The free festival offers affordable plants grown by master gardeners who will share their expertise with attendees, a rummage sale, gardening-related vendors and how-to workshops such as 10 Steps To A Successful Vegetable Garden.

The festival also features an inaugural “Home Gardeners Do It With Plants” contest, where Maricopa County residents can submit photos of their home garden in one of three categories: desert, flower or vegetable. A panel of master gardeners will select a winner in each category based on garden form and function. The three winners will be featured on the Maricopa County Master Gardener’s Facebook page and will receive one 30-minute phone consultation with a master gardener.

For the most current information on the festival and contest, visit the Fall Garden Festival 2013 event on Facebook.
