The annual Home & Garden Show sponsored by Olympia Master Builders is coming up this weekend! The event will be Saturday, April 13, 2013 from 9-6 and Sunday, April 14, 2013 from 10-5. It is at the Pavilion Building at St Martin's University on Pacific Ave and will be chock full of great speakers and vendor booths.
If you are curious about tips on organic gardening or maybe how to remodel for accessibility or how to select a contractor - there will be speakers covering these topics. Also speakers will cover Solar in the NW (yes you can use solar despite our cloudy days) and using patio containers to grow beautiful or edible plants.
This year there is a special treat happening both Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM - You can learn "How to DIY Together" from Mark & Theresa of MyFixItUpLife. If you have a DIY project planned with your spouse or significant other, this might just help you survive the process!
Also this year, be sure and check out the very creative "Bark-A-Tecture" dog houses and "Cat Scape" cat trees! You can vote on your favorite one knowing the proceeds will go to benefit Concern for Animals. How cool is that?
Home & Garden Show vendors will have all kinds of services and products on display, so that you are bound to get some great new ideas for your home & yard. Expect some great drawings for prizes as well. And admission is a bargain - $5.00 is regular admission, but if you go Saturday between 9 and 10 AM, you get in for half price. Or if you are active or retired military with a military ID, you can get in for half price all day Saturday. And seniors get in for half price all day Sunday. Parking is free.
I'm excited to go see what ideas I can take home to MY house and garden - see you there this weekend at the annual Home & Garden Show!!
