Wilson County Gardening Day is this Saturday!
Wilson County Gardening Day on Saturday, March 5, in Floresville will feature a wide variety of garden-related vendors, food booths, family fun, and a silent auction of garden-themed items, including this beautiful handmade quilt.

FLORESVILLE -- Have you been scanning the seed catalogs or counting the days to warmer weather, when you can get out and till the sun-warmed soil? If you’re pining to pick a peck or two of bedding plants or fondly fingering hothouse ferns, wistfully wondering when warm breezes will waft through your windows, take heart: The annual Wilson County Gardening Day is just around the corner.

Sponsored by the Wilson County News, the San Antonio Water System (SAWS), KLUP Radio, Milberger’s Gardening, and more, Wilson County Gardening Day this Saturday, March 5, will feature a live broadcast of the “Gardening South Texas” radio show featuring Calvin Finch and Jerry Parsons on KLUP 930 AM, demonstrations of a low-flow potato-flushing toilet, plant sales by the STARS program of the Floresville Alternative Education Center, free health screenings, music from the “County Line Community Band,” free xeriscape plants while supplies last, and much more.

A silent auction will feature many garden-related items, including a beautiful handmade quilt. There will be a moon bounce for the kids. The event will take place on the grounds of the Floresville Alternative Education Center, located one-half mile east of U.S. 181 off of Sutherland Springs Road/C.R. 329.

Area organizations attend to raise awareness for local garden clubs and nonprofit organizations, including Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts, and church groups. A limited number of food booths staffed by nonprofit organizations will raise funds for their groups.

Throughout the day, there will be drawings for gift certificates to spend at the event. Entry is free.

For more information, contact Jerry Kotzur at SAWS at 830-393-6300 or 830-484-8037.
