For the first time in many years, AFGC will have its own booth at the Maricopa County Home and Garden Show taking place January 10-12 at the Arizona State Fairgrounds in Phoenix. Scottsdale, Sedona, Tempe and Washington Garden Clubs are all participating in this event, providing speakers, bringing merchandise to sell (proceeds going back to the individual clubs), and offering educational displays. The Arizona Herb Association, which recently joined the federation as a plant society, will also be participating, bringing hundreds of locally-harvested seeds to sell.
It’s not too late for clubs or individuals to participate in this three-day event. Event hours are 10am to 6:30 pm on Friday and Saturday, 10am to 5 pm on Sunday. We’re still looking for volunteers to fill shifts. If interested, please contact AFGC Publicity Chair Kim Rosenlof at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-710-8830.
