“I hope (attendees) will be a little more informed about how plants, shrubs and everything interact with us (as humans) – we really are a green world and we really need to be aware of trees and development,” Griffin mentioned.

The expo is open to all plant lovers, whether they’re deep-rooted in gardening or digging up dirt for the first time, according to master gardener and event co-chair Jeannie Zibrida.

Those starting a garden from scratch can check out LDC Management, a local landscaping design firm that hosts Saturday’s Modern Gardening and Companion Planting Forum.

Among the 44 participating vendors, expo visitors can also find food and drink, local honey and soaps, garden-themed pottery, birdhouses and metal art.

Trolleys will be available for gardeners to carry their bounty while they shop.

The event will take place rain or shine, Griffin said. Pets are not allowed.

For Zibrida, an alumnus of the 2019 Master Gardener class, the biannual exhibition was the gateway to joining the program and expanding not only her circle of friends, but also her knowledge of all things green.

“My first time (to participate) over six years ago, I was so intrigued by the idea of ​​being a master gardener that I signed up immediately,” she said. “It’s always been one of the things I’ve wanted to do.”

In addition to hosting garden shows each spring and fall, Hall County Master Gardeners also help maintain the Gardens on the Green, Elachee Nature Science Center’s Pollinator Garden, and Linwood Nature Preserve, among other spaces. of community garden.
