MASSILLON, Ohio—The Ohio State University (OSU) Extension Stark County Master Gardener Volunteer Program will hold its 14th Annual Plant Expo on Saturday, May 18 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Stark County Fairgrounds. This year’s sale location is again at the Stark County Farm Bureau Building (the large red barn) on the Stark County Fairgrounds (305 Wertz Ave. NW, Canton, 44708).

Sale plants are local to the area, and inspected by the Ohio Department of Agriculture to be free of disease and insects.  Offerings include a variety of perennials, native plants, heirlooms, vegetables, and herbs. Guests can learn something new about pollinators, cooking with herbs, and growing bigger & better vegetables in their backyard or community garden. Visitors will also have the opportunity to learn from the pros and get answers to gardening questions with the help of Master Gardener Volunteers at the Garden Information Line station.

All Plant Expo proceeds are reinvested into the Stark County Master Gardener Volunteer program to benefit educational and community outreach programs in the county sponsored by the organization.

The Plant Expo is open to the public and includes free parking and free admission. Cash or check are the only accepted form of payment.
