Registration opens for Garden Expo 2013

Registration for the 12th annual Garden Expo 2013 is now open.

University of Minnesota Extension Crow Wing County Master Gardeners and Crow Wing County Extension invite people to attend the annual educational event from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. April 6 at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.

Cost is unchanged at $25 per person for four break-out classes, morning and afternoon refreshments and a boxed lunch catered by Prairie Bay Grill & Catering. The event includes vendors and exhibitors.

For more information, go online to or call the Crow Wing County Extension office at 218-824-1065 to request a registration form.

The last Garden Expo was sold out the first week in March and many of the break-out classes were full as early as mid-February, so early registration is recommended. Participants will be fully refunded if their cancellation is received by March 22.

For more information about the Garden Expo 2013, including break-out classes and speakers, contact Jackie Froemming, Extension educator, at 218-824-1068 or email
