Children's Plant Fair
Children learn the responsibility of caring for a plant and discover the self-satisfaction in raising something. Most importantly, gardening is a great way for parents and children to bond in the great outdoors.
Children in pre-school to fifth grade can participate in the fair by:
Step 1: Growing one or more plants or trees in a container at home.
Step 2: Bringing their plant and registration card for “show and tell” to the festival between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday or Sunday. Children show their plant and give information about growing plants. Each participant will receive a goody bag. The first 100 participants each day will also receive a free T-shirt.
The Garden Club of St. Petersburg displays their creativity through juried floral designs and crafts representing gardens from around the world. Exhibits are designed with a new theme each year.
The public is invited to vote for the best of show in both the horticulture and floral design category. Also, local middle school students showcase their science fair entries.
Judging occurs the Friday before the festival and awards are given to the winners at the festival on Sunday at 3 p.m. inside Walter Fuller Recreation Center. All judges are from clubs within the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs District VIII and use standards set by the National Garden Clubs, Inc.
