Our conversation today with Joanne Royaltey gave all the details for Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardener's GardenFest happening on Saturday, June 3, 2023, from 8am - 2pm at Belle Grove Plantation.
Joanne is a Program Associate with Frederick County Cooperative Extension, and an Extension Master Gardener. We talked a bit about the history of NSV Master Gardener Association - 30 years - plus we discussed the current status of the Spotted Lanternfly.
She told us about all the things you can expect to find when attending the annual event. GardenFest is a day of gardening fun, education, and shopping. It is held annually on the first Saturday of June. The event features plants for sale, raffle items, vendors, the Master Gardener information booth, Second Hand Rose (rummage sale), tool sharpening, and children’s activities.
