Learn All About Getting Your Garden In Shape For Summer

A Garden Affair will take place at Centreville Library and Historic Wright’s Chance on May 12 from 10 am-2 pm. This free event is a presentation of the Master Gardener program at the University of Maryland College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Those who attend the event can get advice from master gardeners, take gardening workshops and view booths from various community groups and gardeners. Booths will cover many subjects such as shoreline plantings, herb gardening, container gardening, rain gardens, advice about composting and rain barrels. There will also be children’s activities such as face painting, a craft table, story time and a scavenger hunt in the library. Refreshments will be served by Queen Anne’s County 4-H Club.

There will be many environmental organizations in attendance at A Garden Affair such as the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy, Kennard Ecology club and Adkins Arboretum. These organizations have no doubt relied on local brochure printers to provide them with the necessary literature to describe their organization and services to the community. They can also provide them with the necessary signage and banner printing services.

Gardeners from all over Queen Anne’s County, including nearby Stevensville will be very happy to attend this free event. It will likely get them started with planning their own garden for the rapidly approaching summer.

The Master Gardener program currently has 150 active gardeners. Their mission is to education the public about gardening and to help improve the community through healthy and attractive gardens.
