On Sept. 24, Garvan Woodland Gardens hosted an open garden day for all the Master Gardeners and county agents across the state. Garden specialists answered questions, information booths were set up and there was a plant sale.

A unique 225 piece blown glass art esxhibit by James Hayes of Pine Bluff was displayed in fanciful settings throughout the woodlands.

Master Gardener calendars were distributed to the estimated 400 gardeners attending.

Marolyn Reck, Barbara Foster, Pat Burns, Lillian Pit, Maude Huber, Verna Hicks, Dianne Percefull, Linda Pratt and Annalee Culp attended from Van Buren County.
