The Jefferson County Master Gardener Association shared in a collaborative effort with Urban Forestry and Louisville Grows at the Louisville Home, Garden, and Remodeling Show at the KY Expo Center on March 3 – 5, 2017. Urban Forestry had 4000 red oak and black oak bare root saplings that we wrapped, bagged and gave away during the Home Show. It was a huge success.
There were 502 people who stopped at our booth for information about trees and tree give away events including JCMGA Arbor Day Tree Give Away on Saturday, April 22. Flyers were given out about Gardenaganza on Sunday, April 30. Information was shared about soil testing, vegetable and flower gardening and how to attract pollinators.
The Garden Stage presentations were very well received. A huge thank you to our JCMGs, Julia Wall and June Sandercock, and Whitney Sewell, Director of Urban Agriculture, from Louisville Grows, who presented at the Garden Stage at the Home Show. It was an awesome success in building community awareness of the Jefferson County Master Gardeners, the Jefferson County Extension Service as well as Urban Forestry and Louisville Grows while helping make a difference in the tree canopy in Jefferson County.
