8th Annual Garden Fair
Santa Fe County Fair Grounds
Reprinted from the SFMGA Website: This year’s fair is moving entirely indoors. The Plant Sale, focusing on plants selected for the Santa Fe area, will be grouped into categories such as rabbit-resistant and cutting garden. The Garden Shed will have a selection of donated, gently used, garden tools, flowerpots and books; there will also be new items such as gloves and tools.
This year’s featured speaker will be David Salman of Santa Fe Greenhouses who will give a talk on “Ornamental Grasses and Companion Perennials: Creating Beautiful Low Care Landscapes with Grasses “(see schedule below). Additional speakers will be Jim Brooks on water harvesting and Tracy Neal on the impact of climate change on site design.
There will be a number of demonstrations. Doug Pushard from Harvest H2o will demonstrate how to make at water barrel. Our own Master Gardeners will be talking to fair-goers about constructing drip systems, composting, worm composting, and how to create backyard meadows, xeric and herb gardens. Over 20 exhibitors, vendors, and local non-profit garden-related organizations will be on site. There will be three different food vendors and a place to sit down and eat.
