ELLIS COUNTY MASTER GARDENERS
LAWN AND GARDEN 2020 EXPO
March 28, 2020
Waxahachie Civic Center
The Children’s Workshop Room has become a favorite at the annual Ellis County Master Gardener Lawn and Garden Expo. Children and adults all enjoy the educational exhibits, hands-on activities, and lively atmosphere. The opportunity to move to a larger room was such a big hit in 2016 that we will again be set up in the Crape Myrtle Room of the Waxahachie Civic Center. Master Gardener volunteers are available to assist children with activities and answer parents’ questions about gardening with children. Indian Trail Master Naturalists are always a big part of the Children’s Workshop Room, and working closely with the Master Gardeners, provide fun learning activities all through the day.
Representatives from the Junior Master Gardener Program will be on hand to talk with teachers and parents of home-schooled students. The Children’s Workshop Room exhibitors include the Texas Honeybee Guild with their live honeybee demonstration hive. Texas Discovery Gardens joins us with unusual critters and information about their education and outreach.
Fascinating insect collections from local residents are also on display and parents are welcome to bring their insect questions. Smokey Bear has also been known to make an appearance! The Children’s Workshop Room is always a buzz of activity with educational opportunities children can participate in. Plan to visit the Children’s Workshop Room for a fun time and always a surprise or two!
