It's time! Thought it might be good to start a thread where we can post gardening events that are coming up. I know we all have many to add.

Here are two (unfortunately on the same day so I have to choose....) to get us started:

Isanti County Master Gardeners 5th annual "Burst Into Spring", Saturday March 8 8:30am-3:30pm, Cambridge Middle School
keynote speaker, classes, and vendors

Chisago County Master Gardeners 10th annual "Spring Gardening Bonanza", Saturday March 8, 8:30am-3:00pm, Abundant Life Church, North Branch
classes, information and gardener's marketplace
call 651.213.8901

I am hoping to attend the Chisago event. I have attended both of these in the past and there is lots of good information as well as fun shopping at the vendor booths.

Let us know what other gardening events you hear of. I am definitely ready for spring! LOL
