What is more fun than a clothes shopping spree? A plant shopping spree in the beautiful month of May!

After a 2-year lull, the Dare Master Gardener Volunteer Association is holding its Coastal Gardening Festival. The festival will be held on Saturday, May 14 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the grounds surrounding the Thomas A. Baum Senior Center at 300 Mustian Street in Kill Devil Hills.

The highlight of the festival is the huge plant sale, featuring a wide variety of plants grown by local Master Gardeners, including trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, vegetables, and house plants. There will also be over 40 vendors offering garden art, pottery, refreshments, and a wide variety of hand-crafted items.

There will be plenty of fun things for the kids. They can decorate a pot and plant a small plant in it, or participate in several activities offered by various vendors. The “Ask A Master Gardener” booth will be available to answer your gardening questions as well as provide information about the plants you may purchase. The Dare Master Gardener educational booth will highlight the 20th anniversary of the Outer Banks Arboretum & Teaching Garden, with a photo display of the many changes that have occurred over the years and a set of helpful tips for gardening along the Outer Banks. Visitors to the Festival may take a self-guided walking tour of the Arboretum, where they will discover many flowering and native plants that thrive on the Outer Banks.

There is something for everyone to enjoy. The festival will be held rain or shine. Admission is free.

All proceeds from the event benefit the Arboretum and the education and outreach programs of the Dare County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers, in association with North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Dare County. For more information, call the Dare County Extension office at (252) 473-4290.
