Check out what's growing at the Fair. This year the programming is expanding - or should we say growing - in several directions. The Fair is pleased to welcome the Warren Garden Club to the Fair. Enjoy and explore the Garden Path, and the display gardens the club is working so diligently to present. In addition, one can learn from a number of speakers that will be presenting on a variety of topics, or stop by with your little ones for a children's gardening experience.
