Weekend Activities 4/28/12

Saturday 4/28/12

8am-Noon Master Gardener Plant Sale (Prattvillage Garden-Prattville)
Plants of all types (annuals, perennials, herbs, roses, shrubs, and trees) will be sold. Other garden related items will also be available for purchase. Since most of the plants are potted and grown by local Master Gardeners, exactly which plants will be available will be unknown until the day of the sale.
Free pH soil testing will be available. One-half cup of soil is needed for the free testing. For a more comprehensive soil testing by Auburn University (AU), free containers with instructions will be available. There is a $7 processing fee for the AU testing.
For more info see the event page.
10 am Saturday Walking Tours
Some 25 towns across the state are offering free guided walking tours each Saturday morning in April. Each tour begins at 10 a.m. and is approximately one hour long. Community leaders will escort you through the historic districts or courthouse square areas of their hometowns, sharing their personal remembrances and some tall tales from the old days.
