Get in the gardening mood as you explore unique offerings of garden art, wind chimes, planters, garden furniture, iron works, and much more. Free for the children is the "Kids Zone" sponsored by Home Depot, and Craft Warehouse. Kids can craft that "one of a kind" Mother's Day gift. Community volunteers will be helping through out the day. This year's fair features a WSU Master Gardener Answer Clinic as well as Master Composters. Robb Rosser, a local garden writher and Master Gardener will be speaking on "Gardening with Mother Nature; Finding Inspiration in an Earth Friendly Approach to Gardening". He will be speaking at the Camas Library from 10am to 12 pm. Robb's talk is part of the Clark County Beautiful Backyards Seminar Program.
