Submitted by on January 6, 2020 – 8:16 amNo Comment

Porter County Master Gardeners Association show, Valparaiso, Indiana The 16th annual Gardening Show sponsored by the Porter County Master Gardeners Association (PCMGA) takes place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. January 25, 2020, in the Porter County Expo Center, 215 East Division Road, Valparaiso, Indiana.

Note that Valparaiso, even though it’s in the Hoosier state, is on Central Standard Time (aka “Chicago time”) in January.

This year’s theme is “2020 Vision for Your Garden.” To focus in on 20/20 vision, the PCMGA is partnering with Valparaiso Lions Club whose Recycle for Sight program helps improve the vision of people in need.

A Seed & Bulb Exchange is planned – one of the largest on-site event of its type in the country. Your $10 paid admission (cash or check) includes free Seed & Bulb Exchange tickets. Expect an inventory of 10,000 packets of seeds, and an assortment of canna and daffodil bulbs.

There will be presentations by national, regional and local gardening speakers, and demonstrations of basic gardening skills. More than 125 exhibitor and vendor booths will be there with products and services for and about gardens and gardening.

Also on sale, “gently used” gardening books and magazines (starting at 25ยข). Children’s Corner educational activities also are planned.

The Porter County Master Gardeners Association (PCMGA) is a 501(C)3 not-for-profit corporation comprised of Purdue Master Gardeners.
