Gardenology in Geneva

By on May 18, 2012

GENEVA—Gather ideas and dreams for your garden. Merchants in historic, downtown Geneva will host the fourth annual Gardenology. This free event takes place on Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, along State and Third streets.

Gardenology advisers and vendors will bring their best ideas and garden related products to jump-start your gardening season. Experts in every horticulture field including farming, landscape design, weavers, local nurseries, a dog trainer, COD’s Hort Dept. and more will be on hand to answer questions.

Over 50 vendors will have garden-themed give-aways, merchandise, live demos, and a chance to win a beautiful watering can at each store. The restaurants are cooking up delicious, fresh-from-the-garden fare, so plan to eat with Gardenology for lunch or stay for a great night out.

Stop by the welcome tents in front of the courthouse (100 S. Third St.) or down by Geneva Jakes at Dodson’s Place (407 S. Third St.) or at The Little Traveler (404 S. Third St.) to buy tickets to win Gardenology Day raffle prizes. Tickets will be three for $1 or 20 for $5.

“Our mission is to promote, advise and provide expertise for the educational use of the public. We are all about all things gardening and are committed to providing quality sources of information about horticulture, wildlife, and useful and decorative products to encourage the public to garden for the cultural and aesthetic enrichment of their own lives, homes and community,” said organizers Deb Hilton and Sue Hadley of Country Naturals.
