The Collin County Master Gardeners Association will be hosting tours of the international, award-winning research and demonstration gardens at beautiful Myers Park & Event Center in McKinney, Texas, on Saturday, June 4, 2016 from 9 a.m. – noon. For over seven years CCMGA has partnered with the staff at Myers Park to install gardens that include perennials, annuals, crape myrtles, vegetables, herbs, grapes, shrubs and grasses, as well as demonstration gardens around the office and park entrance.
Come learn about Earth-Kind® gardening principles and see the beautiful plants that survive and thrive without fertilizer, pesticides or excessive irrigation. Master Gardeners will be on hand to serve as guides and to answer questions.
Water conservation experts will have hands-on displays where attendees can learn about drip irrigation and rainwater harvesting. The experts will also answer irrigation questions. An information booth will be available to answer general gardening questions.
