The Piney Hills Louisiana Master Gardeners will host their 16th annual Buds and Blooms on February 29, 2020 at the First United Methodist Church in Minden, LA. Each year, seminars are provided for the public to help enhance their education in all things horticulture related.
This educational seminar began as a fundraiser to sponsor the 4-H Garden Contest and continues to be the sole source of monetary incentives and prizes for each contestant. Hence, the name...we are preparing young "buds" to grow and learn to be beautiful garden "blooms."
Please mark your calendars and come join us for wonderful food, fun and door prizes on February 29, 2020!
Registration will begin at 8:30 am. Cost to attend is $15.00. Festivities kick off at 9 am and end at noon.
There will also be a wonderful redwood glider to be raffled! Tickets will be $5 each or 5 for $20. You do not have to be present to win.
