Annual Lander Garden Expo offers workshops, trade show

            A garden event with workshops and a trade show that drew more than 1,500 last year is Saturday, April 14, in Lander.

The annual Garden Expo is 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Lander Valley High School, 350 Baldwin Creek Rd., said Chance Marshall, University of Wyoming Extension educator.  The agenda and additional information is at www.popoagie.org/garden-expo.html.

The free event is focused on those who enjoy gardening, being in their backyards or enjoying the outdoors.

“It is one of our biggest events of the year, and we are hoping to grow more this year,” said Marshall.

Workshops by extension personnel and industry experts run throughout the day, he said.

Those include pruning and caring for grapes, bird watching, managing weeds in your backyard and barnyard, planting perennial pollinators, growing vegetables, caring for young trees, cover crops in the vegetable garden and marketing your farmers market business.
