Celebrate Earth Day at Powell Gardens
Saturday, April 19, 2014
Reduce, reuse, recycle—Powell Gardens will cover it all from a sustainable gardening perspective during Earth Day activities.
Tree Seedling Giveaways
Arrive early and take home a tree seedling (one per party, while supplies last)! We will have limited quantities of a variety of trees, including Japanese Flowering Crabapple, Southern Magnolia, Yellow Buckeye, Northern Catalpa, Grandpa Gourley Peach and Wild Black Cherry. The first 75 parties to enter the Gardens will receive a coupon (one per vehicle) at the gatehouse to exchange for one tree seedling in the Missouri Barn. Visit the barn early in the day for the best selection.
