Bountiful Gardens - Every gardener tries to make the most of their space, time and energy. And whether you are growing ornamental plants or food for your family you want to make sure you get the most beauty and productivity your landscape can provide. This can be especially challenging with our short growing season and busy schedules. So this year at Energy Park we decided to share a few ideas for helping you get the most out of your garden.

New this year! Visitors will have the opportunity to get a jump start on beautifying their own gardens with a little help from Birds & Blooms magazine. People can sign up at birdsandblooms.com/giveaway by Aug. 12 for a chance to win one of the many garden prizes featured at Energy Park this year.

I hope to see you at the Fair!
