Melinda Meservy, owner of Thyme and Place and host of the event said, “We see this as a fun and fantastic opportunity to kick off spring by highlighting, chatting with, and learning from those who make Salt Lake a thriving garden in itself. We’re also thrilled to bring in friends from across the waters, Nebraska, and southern Utah for cross-pollinating ideas and the excitement of getting our hands back in the soil after a winter’s rest. Whether a master gardener, professional horticulturist, or complete newbie, there are no prerequisites to participating. Just come, get your hands dirty, learn a bit and enjoy.”
