TAVARES – The Central Florida Landscape & Garden Fair is a family-friendly weekend event featuring not only expert gardening classes for adults, but a range of educational activities for children.
Free children’s activities include the Children’s Passport, a seed necklace craft and entrance into the butterfly garden, maze and five senses area.
Kids under 16 may complete the Children’s Passport by stopping by the six designated locations on the event’s program map. After visiting each garden, they can exchange the completed passport for a free meal voucher from Chick-fil-A in Mount Dora.
“The Central Florida Landscape & Garden Fair is designed to be a fun, educational event for the entire family,” said Brooke Moffis, Residential Horticulture Agent.
The fair will be held May 3 - 4 at Discovery Gardens, located at the Lake County Agricultural Center, 1951 Woodlea Road in Tavares, from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Sunday. Discovery Gardens is nestled on over four acres behind the Lake County Agricultural Center and features 20 themed gardens, including a string of lush courtyards and six specially designed children’s gardens.
For adults, expert guest speakers will present on a variety of garden and landscape topics including native plants, edible plants, geocaching and more through the two-day fair. The fair will also provide visitors an opportunity to browse and purchase goods from exhibitors specializing in landscaping, gardening, irrigation, fertilizer, composting and hardscapes.
