The 19th annual Home & Garden Show brought to you by the WSU Extension Master Gardeners of Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties will fill the entire Grays Harbor Fairgrounds Event Center with shopping and educational opportunities for the whole family.
On Saturday at 2:00 PM, award-winning garden designer, Sue Goetz, the featured speaker, will engage the audience, tackling Fix my Yard, sharing design and insider tips for the real world, with practical ideas and advice to bring your landscape dreams to life. Sue Goetz is based in Washington state and is the owner of Creative Gardener. Her motto …”Inspiring gardeners to create” defines her hands-on, how-to approach she shares with audiences all over the country. Trained in horticulture and design, Sue’s topics are presented with the factual, trusted knowledge of a gardener.
Sunday, May 19 at 1:00 PM, the featured speaker will be Ciscoe Morris. He will be enchanting the audience with Dazzling Plant Combos. He will use plants to demonstrate vibrant combinations that also get along well together. Ciscoe is a well known Pacific Northwest Master Gardener. He appears regularly on TV and radio, and his book, ‘Ask Ciscoe’, remains a best seller. When he is not speaking, writing or hosting an international garden tour, Ciscoe can be found gardening at his home in Seattle.
Master Gardeners will be available to answer gardening questions at the Plant Clinic table, and they will have several scheduled how-to presentations throughout both days.
