The Hammond Spring Garden Day is set for March 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the LSU AgCenter Hammond Research Station.
The program will include LSU AgCenter recommendations on gardening and related topics and feature garden products and services available in the area, said Sandra Benjamin, LSU AgCenter county agent.
This year’s program will include a plant swap, the annual plant sale, kid’s activities, commercial and educational exhibits, educational presentations, concessions and the plant diagnostic center.
Tours of the station at 10 a.m. and noon will showcase some of the research there, Benjamin said.
Participants also may bring soil samples for testing. The cost for each one-pint soil sample is $10, payable by check or money order.
Visitors are asked to bring nonperishable food items to donate to the Tangi Food Pantry.
The event is sponsored by the LSU AgCenter and the Tangipahoa Parish Master Gardeners Association.
Admission is $5 per vehicle. More information is available from Sandra Benjamin at 985-748-9381 or 985-748-5462.
