WLGC Garden Symposium
New Gardening Year Kick-off
From Noon to 4:30 PM
We have three awesome presenters who will share their visions and love of gardening!
Beginning at noon - Stan Slaughter - a long time environmental and energy conservation educator and contractor. Stan not only holds these credentials but also comes to share his talent on the guitar as the Eco-Troubadour since 1991. He will present a power point presentation of photos, recycling and composting ideas. His crowning achievement was being invited by His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, to speak at the Highgrove Garden Festival in Tetbury, England in 2016.
His secret is to share how 2+2=9, we will allow this to happen!
The Weatherby Lake Park Board will also be presenting their goals and missions for 2023 along with a booth sharing past and present projects.
“What’s New in the Year of Plants and Trees” will be presented by the Grass Pad, owner, our very own, Mike McDermott.
It is hopeful that there will be a few vendors displaying/selling gardening wares, seeds, pots, Backyard Bird Center with bird seeds for the birds in our area, artists and more.
