Join us at Heathcote this weekend for the
30th Annual Garden Festival
This year’s Garden-Fest includes a variety of plant and flower vendors, garden supplies, garden arts & crafts, children’s activities, refreshments, demonstrations and more.
Visitors will gain insights of conservation efforts and take away ideas that can be put to work in their home gardens.
