Dig in and get all the dirt on Orange County Coastal homes with a trip to the 2023 San Clemente GardenFest. The San Clemente Garden Club hosts their annual event at the San Clemente Community Center on Saturday, April 15, 2023 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Gardening enthusiasts will not want to miss this. Plenty of vendors will be on hand to educate and provide insight to Southern California real estate residents. Demonstrations are planned throughout the day including gardening tool sharpening. Informative exhibits showcase water conservation, planting tips and even teach about butterflies. Local art is on display and plenty of fun to be had at the funky container contest.
Because it’s never too early to encourage green thumb growers, the 2023 GardenFest has plenty of activities for children. Youngsters can learn all the basics. Crafts include making bird feeders out of pinecones. And, of course everyone will want to get their faces painted. Bring the kids and stir up an interest in gardening. What fun!
Take advantage of the day to add to the growing garden with the eagerly awaited plant sale. The sale begins promptly at 8 a.m. But, remember the early bird gets the worm, and due to the popularity of this event a long line to enter will be probable. From annuals to perennials, there will be plenty of plants to spruce up Orange County Coastal home gardens.
Don’t forget to check out the flea market too. An assortment of garden decor, knicknacks, pots and supplies quickly fill up a cart. Get gardening ready by purchasing a pair of gloves. Every gardener loves a good apron with pockets for tools, seeds and more. Select from colorful vases that are perfect for presenting pretty flowers. Who knows what other treasures await!
Proceeds from the 2023 GardenFest benefit the San Clemente Garden Club Scholarship, Junior Gardeners programs and beautification programs around the city.
