Make a Miniature Garden at the Fair!


Davis County Extension & Outreach’s Master Gardeners  will be hosting a workshop on Friday, July 12th from 2-5pm on the Veatch Stage. Iowa State University speaker Becki Lynch from Linn County Master Gardeners will begin a presentation at 2pm about miniature gardens. After her presentation, there will be supplies for kids and adults to make their own miniature gardens.

We will provide plants and other fun items to put into your miniature garden, such as dinosaurs or farm animals. Anyone wishing to make a garden should bring their own container. We suggest round containers be 12” in diameter and no larger than 12”x 12” for square containers. All containers need to be at least 3-4 inches deep. Old baskets, small buckets, wooden boxes, or plant pots will work.  We will have some simple containers available. 

For more information, contact the Davis County Extension and Outreach Office
at 641-664-2730.

Don't miss this fun event starting at 2pm on the Veatch Stage on July 12!
