When is this year's Garden Festival in the Park?
The 15th annual Garden Festival in the Park will be from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Will Rogers Garden Center, 3400 NW 36. In the 15 years since it began, this festival has grown to be one of the most successful, educational gardening programs in the Oklahoma City area.
This year, participants can enjoy several free gardening seminars while their children take part in gardening activities.
Tours of the Will Rogers Horticultural Gardens will be available, and visitors can shop for gardening supplies, crafts and decorations, as well as plants and herbs at vendor booths.
If you get thirsty or hungry, visit the Late Bloomer Club's Garden Cafe, which will sell a variety of homemade goodies.
Oklahoma Council of Garden Club projects will be displayed throughout Will Rogers Park during the festival, so just look for the green and white balloons.
In the Garden Center, hourly seminars will be offered that can help improve gardening skills.
Amy Brothers, a horticulturist at the Oklahoma County Extension Service, will teach "Landscaping for Dummies" at 10 a.m., to help beginners learn the basics of planning a landscape for their yard.
