pre-post * Spring Garden Fair

Its that time of year, when every gardeners fancy turns to new plants, new artwork , a new project for the yard and garden.  Just in time for the annual Clackamas County Master Gardeners Spring Garden Fair.

And here I am, just 3 years after joining the group, working on the Spring Fair committee.  Did I ever mention that the reason that I wanted to become a Master Gardener™ was due to this annual event?  We have lived here for 20 years now, and every year I would take my wagon the few blocks to the fairgrounds and buy my little heart out; annuals, perennials, artwork to enhance my garden.  I can still look at the plants and things in my yard and know which ones came from the Spring Garden Fair.

The Fair takes a lot of planning, the committee numbers more than 25 volunteers that start planning in September.  It’s a great group, we are really committed to our event. A few members of this group have been volunteering at the Fair for over 10 years.   The set-up process takes about 4 days.  Today I was at the Fairgrounds where the set-up committee was measuring out the spaces for the 202 vendors, in the wind and rain.  The pots for the Potting Station were delivered, the sound guy was out there as I was leaving, setting up the speakers on the grounds.  And I was there sorting thru all the signs that we have made to direct vendor traffic, advertise our 10-Minute University™, and point out some of the great features we have at this years fair.

I love having a behind the scenes view.  And tomorrow I will share a glimpse of that with you, as we walk around and see how it all comes together, and I will begin my story of our 28th Annual Spring Garden Fair.
