The April snows are reluctantly yielding to green thumb season and on April 29 master gardener and author Michelle MacKinnon makes an appearance to discuss sustainable landscapes and offer gardening tips. The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Litchfield Crossings, 169 Danbury Road, New Milford.
According to MacKinnon, Litchfield Crossings has an exceptional array of plant life, more than anywhere else in the area, so she will be conducting tours at noon, 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to showcase and observe the native species of plants on the site, in addition to offering flower and plant recommendations for everyday living and gardening.
In addition to MacKinnon, honey producers, farmers, gardeners and garden suppliers will be on hand. A portion of all proceeds from the day, which is supported by Panera Bread in New Milford, will benefit the local Sierra Club.
