The Garden Club of York will hold its 12th annual Garden Faire at the York Expo Center on Saturday, May 6, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Garden Faire began in 2006. At first, perennials were sold that club members dug up from their gardens and a few annuals that were purchased. The original location was the old train station on North Street. Each year the popularity increased, so in 2012 the event was moved to the Sovereign Bank Stadium plaza.
In 2016 the Garden Club moved to the Paddock building at the York Expo
Center where it is located again this year. The club is building on the concept by adding vendors that sell garden related items, including garden art, garden fertilizers, and bird houses. There will also be several food vendors. And there are still plants dug up from members’ gardens, but the Garden Faire also has plants that have been consigned or purchased from local nurseries.
