What with the warmer temperatures, of late, it hasn’t been too hard to imagine that spring could really be just around the corner. If that thought energizes you to plan for that future garden, consider taking in the Garden Expo.
The 16th annual Garden Expo will be held at the Exhibition Hall of the Alliant Energy Center, February 13-15, 2009. The Expo features exhibits, seminars and hands-on workshops for the gardener and landscaping enthusiast. Many of the speakers are staff with UW-Extension, Cooperative Extension.
Ticket prices, on-site, are $7.00 for a single day or $10.00 for two days. Admission proceeds support Wisconsin Public Television.
