      Green thumbs welcomed at Garden Extravaganza

      The Marquette Beautification and Restoration Committee is thinking spring with their Garden Extravaganza this Saturday. The event brings gardening experts and novices together with a series of workshops and guest speakers. The Keynote Speaker, Vijai Pandian will be talking about trends in urban landscaping. Workshops include edible gardening and the language of flowers.

      "There's a ton of anticipation this year because this winter has been so hard on all of us and I think there's a lot of excitement," said Barb Kelly, Vice President of the MBRC. "I am so excited about spending a whole day just thinking about flowers and spring and trees and shrubs and everything that beautifies our city."

      The Garden Extravaganza runs from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the University Center on the campus of Northern Michigan University. Registration is underway online, we have a link to that page right here.
