Sustainable gardening focus of master gardener fair

Sustainable gardening practices that promote the wise use of energy, water and time will be at the forefront of the 14th Annual Gardening Fair presented by the UConn Extension Master Gardener Program of Fairfield County and the Connecticut Master Gardener Association.
The fair will take place Saturday, June 18, from 10 to 3, in conjunction with the opening of the Bethel Farmers Market on the grounds of the Fairfield County Extension Center at 67 Stony Hill Road in Bethel. Admission is free.

The fair will offer an opportunity to learn about sustainable gardening through demonstrations, presentations, walks, information booths, and hands-on activities for children. Topics include managing and improving soil, composting, vegetable gardening, beekeeping, pollinators, wildflowers and native plants, invasive plants and insects and more.

Master gardeners will be on hand to answer questions and free soil pH testing will be provided. Plants and gently used gardening books donated by the master gardeners will be for sale.
