Every year the LPMGA holds two plant sales: “Plant Sale” is held in April and “PlantFest” is held in September.
Each one is held on a Saturday, with hours roughly from 9 am-1 pm. There is usually a "Plant Swap", "Ask a Master Gardener", and, of course, plants for sale. Most of these plants are native to the area and have a better chance of surviving in our climate.
For more information on PlantFest, visit http://www.plantfest.org/
Alternatively, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (ULL) holds its own festival each Spring, known as “Festival des Fleurs”. Master Gardeners participate as volunteers in our own booth as well as general festival help. For more information, visit http://www.festivaldesfleurs.org/
Again, more information will be available on our website as the dates of these events draw closer. http://www.lpmga.org/
