Garden Festival and Plant Sale

This family-friendly free festival is hosted by the UF/IFAS Extension Orange County Master Gardener Volunteers and will include plant vendors, food trucks, children’s activities, educational sessions, and more!

Join us on Saturday March 4th, 2023, from 8:30am to 3:30pm for our annual Garden Festival & Plant Sale at UF/IFAS Extension Orange County, 6021 S. Conway, Orlando, 32812. The theme for this year is Flower Power- The Power of Native Flowers! Hosted by the UF/IFAS Extension Orange County Master Gardener Volunteers, proceeds from this fundraiser help support our efforts to assist Orange County residents with their plant and soil questions, serve 4-H programs, and teach K-12 students how to garden and grow their own food. The event is free and is a fun day out for the entire family!

This year’s event will have more than 40 plant, art, and craft vendors. Plant and garden selections will include indoor and outdoor plants, fruit trees, Florida native plants, organic fertilizer, bonsai, and micro irrigation systems. Plus, there will be food trucks and a Kids’ Zone featuring crafts and a treasure hunt!

Interested in learning about the pH of your soil and how it may impact your plants growth? Drop off a sample for $2 to be tested by our Master Gardener Volunteers and receive recommendations if it needs amending.

UF/IFAS Extension Agent Emeritus Tom MacCubbin will take the stage at 11:00am to share his gardening expertise! And Master Gardener Volunteers will offer demonstrations and workshops as well as free diagnostic services for your plant problems.
