Sample fall at Master Gardeners event 19 Sep 11

With the end of summer officially three days away, the Carver-Scott master Gardeners are celebrating the arrival of fall by inviting families to their Fall Garden Festival and Wine Tasting.

The event will take place, rain or shine, on Thursday, September 22, from 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Scott County Fairgrounds in Jordan.

The evening celebration will include several presentations and demonstrations, including fall and holiday container gardening, planting fall bulbs for spring blooms, and fall lawn care. You will also be able to taste the flavors of the harvest and learn what wines to serve with a variety of cheeses, appetizers, and fall dishes.
