Know your garden better with Communities in Bloom

Group hosts event on best practices for gardening in Harrison Hot Springs

How well do you know your garden?

The Communities in Bloom committee for Harrison Hot Springs is hosting an event on Saturday that will get you better connected with your own garden space.

They will be giving out information on a variety of topics, including garden plot plans, seed germination, soil care, fertilizers and composting, planting, weed control and pollinators. They will also be hosting a few family friendly activities. Visitors will receive a free potted sunflower and buy a native lupine. For a small fee, you can also paint a bee house. There will be a master gardener in attendance, along with the Miami River Streamkeeper’s Committee.

The Know Your Garden event will all take place in Spirit Square at the Harrison Hot Springs Plaza from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

All proceeds from the event will go toward the Help Project, a collaborative community effort to increase support for local youth.
