March 14, 2015 - Mini Field Trip to Springfest, a garden show at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta, New Jersey. We leave Harrington Park from the Library parking lot at 9:00 A.M. and carpool to Springfest. After a morning spent enjoying all the exhibits we have lunch at a nearby restaurant. If you are interested in joining us, please contact us (button at the bottom of the page). Inspiring and educating gardeners for 18 years, Springfest returns just in time to help you through those last gray, slushy, muddy days of winter. The sun-drenched warmth of the Springfest Conservatory will be filled with garden displays overflowing with color, fragrance, and inspiration for visitors to glean ideas for their own gardens. The area’s premier landscape companies and garden designers are on hand throughout the show to share their knowledge or set up consultations.
Here are some exhibit photos from previous Springfest outings:

"A GARDEN FOR THE SENSES; SIGHT, SMELL, TASTE, TOUCH, AND HEARING"
Why does anyone garden? Who knows? We do know that a garden satisfies both the gardener and the viewer. We create for the visual and we also stimulate the other four senses to make our garden exciting for ourselves and our visitors.
