GROW JAMESTOWN GARDEN FAIR AND HOME SHOW VENDORS AND WORKSHOP SCHEDULE AVAILABLE NOW

The vendor list and workshop schedule for the GROW Jamestown Garden Fair and Home Show is now available. Presented by Mike’s Nursery, the event will take place on Saturday April 1st at the Northwest Arena from 10 am to 4 pm. This year more than 50 vendors and 12 workshops have been lined up by the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation.

This year we have a total of 56 vendors, some of which are returning favorites and others are new for the first time in 2017. Vendors scheduled to attend include nurseries, contractors, landscape designers, craft vendors, food vendors, neighborhood clusters, and more. New this year is an interactive Hydroponic system presented by the BioDome Project. Also new this year is a documentary feature. “Each year that we come together to plan this event, we want to include documentaries but resources have been limited until now,” says Breen. This year, two documentaries will be streaming in the upstairs of the arena for participants to enjoy.

Another key feature of the GROW Jamestown Garden Fair and Home Show is the educational workshops hosted by the Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program of Chautauqua County and other area professionals. This year
