The Jamestown Renaissance Corporation has announced that this year’s GROW Jamestown Garden Fair and Home show, presented by Mike’s Nursery, is coming to downtown Jamestown on April 2 from 11 am to 5 pm. The newly expanded event is free for the community and will be held at the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena.
“Historically this event was focused on gardening. We added home improvement features for 2016 to make it the only true garden and home show in the area,” said Edwin Rodriguez Jr., events and marketing associate for the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation. “We’ve combined everything the community loved about our popular garden fair with all the things you’d come to expect from a home improvement show,” said Rodriguez.
Features of the GROW Jamestown Garden Fair and Home Show include landscape designers, craft vendors, home improvement experts, kid’s craft activities, local nonprofit organizations, DIY demonstrations, prizes, retail vendors, food, educational gardening workshops, and more.
Through partnerships with the Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener program and other area professionals, the GROW Jamestown Garden Fair and Home Show will offer educational garden and home improvement seminars throughout the day. Topics will include: raised bed gardening, energy conservation in the home, food preservation and canning, the Renaissance Block Challenge grant application process, tips to prevent wildlife from destroying gardens, how to identify and remove lead based paint from a home, and many others.
“We’re very excited to help present this event to the community for another year,” said Mike Krauth, owner of Mike’s Nursery. “This is a great opportunity for all area residents to come talk with indoor and outdoor garden professionals about their projects and have their questions answered,” said Krauth. Mike’s Nursery will be giving away free tomato seedlings to event guests while supplies last.
