You won’t want to miss the fifth annual Garden Festival in Castlegar.

The Castlegar Garden Club and Castlegar Communities in Bloom partner to sponsor this open-air fest that attracts vendors from the Kootenay region: metal garden art, bee keeping supplies, concrete bird baths, cupcakes, seeds, recycling programs, compost bin pick up, and great food!

Local plant vendors will celebrate growing with all things GARDEN: perennials, shrubs, ornamental grasses, herbs; as well as wide selection of garden-ready veggie starts are available for sale.

The Garden Fest is a way to encourage and expose people to nature and growing: which is always a good thing. Organizers say they still have room for more vendors: Cost of a booth is $30 for vendors, and free to non-profits.

Come out on May 17, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Community Complex Recreation Centre at 2101 6th Ave.  Admission is free. For more information email castlegargardenfest@shaw.ca  or go to www.castlegargardenfest.weebly.com.
