KPQ Home and Garden Show 2015

Attention all home owners, gardening fanatics and DIY specialists....it is time once again

for the KPQ Home and Garden Show. The KPQ Home and Garden Show will begin on

Friday, March 13, 2015 and will run all day on Saturday the 14th and Sunday the 15th at

the Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee. If you have never attended the KPQ Home and

Garden Show before, you might be surprised by the number of opportunities available

for learning new gardening skills. The Chelan/Douglas Master Gardeners will be hosting

a myriad of workshops throughout the entire weekend. This year, the theme of the

Master Gardener display is Water Conservation and Water-Wise Landscaping; a very

pertinent topic for the upcoming season given the low snowpack and unseasonably

warm temperatures.

For the younger crowd, there will be a kids learning area including a science lab and a

multitude of hands-on activities available free of charge. These projects are a fun way to

introduce children to a love of science and the outdoors and is a welcome stop for all

parents attending the Home and Garden Show with children.

In addition to the kids learning area, seminars will be held daily for adults in the family.

On Friday at 4 PM Master Gardener Jan Clark will discuss Adding Edible Plants To The

Landscape. Caring for Ornamental Trees and Shrubs will take place at 10 AM on

Saturday, Growing Dahlias in NCW at 12 PM Saturday, Trees For Our Community at

1:30 PM Saturday an DIY Raised Garden Beds at 11 AM on Sunday. All seminars are

free of charge and open to the public.

The Master Gardener Association, which is the fund-raising arm of the Chelan/Douglas

Master Gardener Program, will be hosting tool sharpening demonstrations and will have

tool sharpening kits available on-site for purchase. They will also have available for

purchase the Day by Day Garden Planner for NCW. This is a hand-held guide to
