During the first weekend in March Green Acres Folsom hosted our 2nd annual Dig into Spring Ideas Fair. Due to current water situation, many of our vendor booths and workshops focused on how to garden during a low water year. With over 25 vendor booths, free food from food trucks like Krush Burger, Drewski's, Bacon Mania and El Matador, educational talks, and specials...it was a smashing success! (Despite a little rain and wind).
We had nearly 100 attendees at many of the free workshops. Homeowners enjoyed learning about waterwise topics like: Designing with Low Water Plants, Growing Fruit Trees with Less Space & Less Water, Surviving the Drought & more.
Here are a few pictures from the fun-filled ideas fair weekend. We will see you next year in March for our 3rd Annual Dig into Spring Ideas Fair!
Cal Color Nurseries with some goregous baskets, annuals and perennials.
The world famous Olla pot planted up in a raised bed. The best way to conserve water in your veggie gardesn this year. 50-70% less water used as compared to surface watering. Along with some friendly Green Acres staff.
Our favorite...Krush Burger. Customers enjoyed a free burger on us.
The Kid's Planting Experience was a hit. Kids and parents could plant up their own strawberry planter to take home for free.
Lots of customers brought their doggies to enjoy the Ideas Fair. Green Acres is always dog friendly. :)
Farmer Fred stopped by on Sunday. Along with Travis Gill.
