What is The Gardening Green Expo?
The Gardening Green 2023 Expo, hosted by the North and South Rivers Watershed Association, is hosting five days of free virtual zoom presenters, which leads up to the free-to-attend live event happening at a local small business located in the seaside town of Scituate.
“Stroll through the greenhouses at Kennedy’s Country Gardens and visit with vendors of products and services that will help you get the best out of your garden and lawn. There will also be talks by local experts and environmental organizations.”
The Gardening Green Expo is both an online and in-person event that will give event attendees the knowledge and information they need to get a good understanding of many garden-related topics.
