May 20 and 21, 2017
The Grays Harbor Home and Garden Show will fill the Pavilion at the Grays Harbor County Fairgrounds with plants, garden accessories, home goods, services, and inspiration. The show is hosted by the WSU Master Gardeners of Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties and will be open Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Parking and admission are free! Bring your friends and family for activities, goods and services for all.
The garden side of the show will be overflowing with vegetable starts, orchard trees, and ornamental and native plants from local Pacific Northwest nurseries. The Master Gardener Store will supply you with books, planter boxes, color pots and more. On the home side, find vendors offering house and hardscape services from woodworking to energy systems to pond design.
This year two guest speakers will share their knowledge! On Saturday, Sam Benowitz, of Raintree Nursery, will talk on “Proven Tree Fruit and Berry Varieties for Our Maritime Climate,” followed by a grafting demonstration. On Sunday, the legendary Ciscoe Morris will share his “Favorite Plants for Late Spring,” with additional growing tips and a Q&A. These keynote presentations will be at 1:00 p.m. each day.
Master Gardeners will be available to answer gardening questions at the Plant Clinic table, and they will give several short how-to presentations throughout both days. As you peruse the show, pick up some treats from the refreshments table, stop by the children’s booth with the kids, and take a few minutes outside to tour the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden.
