Daylily Sale at Hamilton County Fairgrounds
Jul 06, 2018 04:33AM
The Hamilton County Master Gardener Association (HCMGA), the first of its kind in the state, has offered more than just gardening education since it was formed in 1985. The HCMGA, that promotes the art, science and pleasure of gardening in the community in collaboration with the Cooperative Extension Service of Hamilton County and Purdue University, will host its annual Daylily Sale featuring more than 175 varieties from 8 a.m. to noon on July 14 at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds Daylily/Iris Bed located on the southwest corner of the fairgrounds.
Today there are Master Gardener Programs in more than 75 counties throughout Indiana and nearly 50 counties in the state offer Master Gardening associations. The nonprofit associations offer the community information about good gardening practices, and they also host a variety of community and special events throughout the year, including Indiana’s State and County Fairs.
During this growing season, Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation is encouraging Master Gardeners in the area to donate fresh vegetables and fruits to food pantries throughout the county. A complete list of participating food pantries, dates and times for donations is available on the HCMGA website.
