Bay Village Green Team's garden show promotes sustainability

The first annual Spring Green Garden Show at the Bay Village Community Garden on Sat. May 18 draws lots of gardening fans.

With weather warming up, it's time for gardeners to enjoy the season. To get gardeners primed for their planting, the Bay Village Green Team hosted a sustainable gardening event at the Bay Community Garden, located on the corner of Wolf and Forestview roads, on May 18. 

The Spring Green Garden Show, a family-friendly event promoting organic gardening and other green home and yard ideas, had displays from local organizations and businesses focusing on organic lawn and garden care, sustainable landscape design and organic gardening products.

On a brisk but sunny day, visitors had a chance to experience the beauty of the community garden and meet the Bay Village Green Team volunteers. The many booths also included children's activities, where kids could make cool crafts from recycled materials, work the Enviroscape Model to learn about the importance of soil and water conservation and visit with animals from the Lake Erie Nature & Science Center.

Visitors could also view the progress of the gardens inside the adjacent community garden.
