Flower & Garden Fest this weekend

The 2015 Fall Flower & Garden Fest will be October 16 & 17 at the Truck Crops Experiment Station in Crystal Springs, Mississippi. Crystal Springs is about 25 miles south of Jackson. Hours are from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. both days and food vendors will have food and drinks available. For more information contact your local Mississippi County Extension office, or call (601) 892-3731.

This is the largest home gardening show in the Southeast with average attendance of 5,000 people over the two-day event. Featured in the 3 acre garden are winners of the prestigious All-America Selections award. Admission and parking are free.

Copiah County Master Gardeners will demonstrate how to make rain barrels on Friday at 1:30 and on Saturday at noon in section C.  The barrel will be raffled on Saturday afternoon.

Lots of food booths will be available to choose from — ribeye steak sandwiches, catfish, BBQ plates, chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, and more. For dessert, there will be cookies, cakes, and sweetpotato sweets. The Chautauqua Garden Club will be selling homemade ice cream, and the Copiah County 4-H will serve hot and cold drinks all day.
