Don’t Miss The CCMGA Garden Show 2023
by Dawn Oldfield, CCMGA Public Relations Chairperson
Save the date for The Garden Show 2023, presented by the Collin County Master Gardeners Association. It’s what a garden show should be! For garden lovers it’s a great day out to immerse themselves in timely tips for successful gardening, informative demonstrations and presentations, local vendors, and fun activities for the entire family – including scavenger hunts for adults and children alike! There is no better place than The Garden Show to learn about North Texas Gardening and Earth-Kind® gardening principles. Collin County’s most prestigious garden show will take place on March 18 & 19, 2023 at beautiful Myers Park & Event Center in McKinney, Texas.
Browse through booths featuring appealing garden and gift items and attend lectures presented by experts in horticulture on a variety of topics. Saturday’s speakers will cover “Drought Proofing Your Landscape”, “Growing Great Turf in Collin County”, Texas Tough Natives for Droughts & Floods”, and “Growing Tomatoes in Collin County”. Speakers on Sunday include three award winning “Steves” who will share their expertise on “A Primer in Tree Pruning”, “Creating Exciting Plant Combinations”, and “A Serious Look at Garden Whimsy”.
CCMGA will also roll-out the green carpet at 3:30PM on Sunday to bestow honorary membership to Neil and Lynn Sperry. Together and individually the Sperry’s have forged paths that have inspired millions. Neil is a Texas gardening and horticulture icon known for his books, magazine, and radio program. Lynn is a passionate educator and has served on the McKinney ISD Board of Trustees for 38-years. Together they helped found Serenity High and the Crape Myrtle Trails of McKinney.
Each year CCMGA selects a local organization to be their charity partner for The Garden Show. This year all proceeds from the $2 entry donation will benefit Community Garden Kitchen. This local non-profits mission is to provide food insecure residents with freshly prepared healthy meals on a daily basis in a restaurant style setting. Visitors to Community Garden Kitchen can also enjoy learning, growing, and eating the produce they help raise.
The Garden Show is an indoor event, so come rain or shine! Hours are from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM on Saturday, March 18 and from 11:00 – 4:00 PM Sunday, March 19. Entry on both days is a donation of $2 per person. Parking is free! Bringing your own cart or wagon is strongly encouraged. Visit www.ccmgatx.org/TheGardenShow for up-to-date information.
