Escape to Spring

Imagine getting up in the morning and harvesting the makings for breakfast -- fresh spinach and eggs for an omelet and honey and peaches for yogurt or pancakes. Later in the day, you pull a few onions to garnish baked chicken and grab some mixed greens and a couple tomatoes for a dinner salad. Do this on any scale and you are part of the fast-growing “urban farming” movement that promotes backyard-grown food and good health. We invite you to learn more about urban farming and living the good life, indoors and outdoors, during our 21st annual Outdoor Show this weekend.

Tired of winter? Step into spring this weekend at our Outdoor Show where you’ll be surrounded by spring’s blooms and the hottest outdoor trends of 2015. The show will be held Saturday and Sunday, February 28 & March 1 -- indoors and under heated tents. Enjoy a array of unique exhibits, from sensational display gardens to the latest in outdoor entertaining. Enjoy ongoing garden demonstrations from the latest in ornamental and edible plants to backyard beekeeping and raising chickens. After a long, cold winter, everyone can use a little preview of spring. Outdoor 2015 is sure to provide a real showcase for creating a colorful and much welcomed spring! LEARN MORE >>
