Gardening Show returns to Porter County

Although winter is still here, gardening fans will want to look ahead and plan for the upcoming growing season in the Region.

And they can do so at the 17th annual Gardening Show on Jan. 21 at the Porter County Expo Center in Valparaiso.

“We are so excited to have the show again,” said LuAnn Troxel, publicity chairwoman of the show. “We missed two years,” she said, referring to the halt of the event due to the pandemic.

Troxel said there will be many features and activities to engage the public at the event. Everything from plant and gardening supply sales to presentations, demos and a seed exchange will be in the spotlight. There are more than 120 vendors participating in the show.

“It’s not a lot different from previous shows,” she said adding they’ve listened to feedback from past show attendees about what they loved seeing at the event.

Tea Party & Brunch Social

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – This event is the 1st of many!

Normally, Marnie Enterprises, LLC and its owner Niesha Ham-McMillian (also known as NeNe Terri) hosts an annual school supply giveaway.

In previous years, they’ve had pillars of the community speak to the children of Clarendon School District 3 about the importance of staying in school and following their dreams. They usually have a build-a-bag workshop where children would leave the event with sturdy backpacks filled with unlimited supplies. There were no limits.

They served food, juices, and snacks and everything was absolutely free!

COVID-19 put a pause on that and they took a step back to come up with something new and innovative.

This year, the company has decided to use one of its businesses, Celestial Healing Garden, as the face of the new fundraising for the community.

The theme is UniTEA in the Clarendon CommuniTEA.
