Spring Forward to NW Flower Show

The Whatcom Country Master Gardener Foundation invites you and your friends to join us on our annual visit to the 2018 Northwest Flower and Garden Festival. We will take a bus on the first day of the show, February 7th, at 7:30 am and return around 6:30 pm. To learn more about this remarkable and exciting event, please visit the website, which includes the seminar schedule and vendors and more.

The tickets are $50.00 and cover the bus and entrance to the show. You may send a check made out to “Whatcom Master Gardener Foundation” to 1000 N. Forest Street, Bellingham, 98225. Include your name, email address, and cell phone number.

Please bring along any refreshments you would like for the day. You will be able to leave items on the bus. We will meet near or in Bellis Fair in Bellingham. Final information will come out the end of January.

We hope you can join us!
