Canby's annual Garden Fair still on tap
Now going on 36 years, the Clackamas County Master Gardeners have invited the region's best growers and garden artists to the Clackamas County Fairgrounds for its two-day Spring Garden Fair.
The 36th annual event is back this year May 2-3.
Clackamas County Master Gardeners will also be on hand staffing the many features that make the fair unique.
There's Garden Fair Raffle, 10-minute University, free pH soil testing, children's activities, free plant check, potting station, Silent Auction featuring New Plant Introductions, and Ask A Master Gardener booths.
You can check out all that's being offered on the website at: www.springgardenfair.org.
If you're hungry for knowledge and want to know more about subjects like bees and other local volunteer organizations, check out the exhibits in the 4-H Hall. And when it's time to take a break there's the Good Thyme Food Court and coffee available too.
The event invites local student volunteers to provide plant taxis that tow for tips as fundraisers for school activities. The greater Portland Iris Society will be in the house on Sunday - so don't forget to stop by and admire their displays.
You will find them on the back porch of the Main Pavilion.
This year's event, at 694 NW 4th Ave., in Canby, will be held 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $5 with youth under age 16 free and parking is also free.
Clackamas County Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by Oregon State University in the science of gardening.
Proceeds fund horticulture scholarships for students at Clackamas Community College as well as community grants and free educational programs. Find out more about our event at www.SpringGardenFair.org or https://www.facebook.com/SpringGardenFair.
