Henrico Master Gardeners Host Henrico Harvest Fair

The Henrico Master Gardener Association will host the Henrico Harvest Fair, Saturday, Oct. 18th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Armour House and Gardens at Meadowview Park, 4001 Clarendon Road — just down Laburnum Avenue from Lewis Ginter. Admission to the festival is free.
Events will include classes, demonstrations, and family activities related to gardening — with topics including winter gardening, indoor herbs, buiding a rain barrel and more. Demonstrations will include beekeeping, pruning and composting along with hands-on activities.
In addition to adult classes, which are $10, there will also be $8 classes for children grade K-5. Pre-registration is required and the form can be accessed online or by calling 501-5160.

In addition, The Master Gardener Association will hold its Green Elephant
Sale of garden related books, tools and plants. And over 20 vendors will sell their products and services.

The Harvest Fair is presented in cooperation with the
Henrico Extension Office and the Henrico Division of Recreation and Parks, and will be held rain or shine.
