Southwestern Indiana Master Gardener Association to Art Fair at their Display Garden

On Sunday, June 9, from 12:30 to 3:30 pm, Southwestern Indiana Master Gardener Association (SWIMGA) will host its annual plant sale at the SWIMGA Display Garden. This event will feature many local artists and craft booths, live music from the Honey Vines, and food trucks. The event is family-centered, and there will be activities for children such as face painting. The gardens look their best in June, so visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to enjoy both the gardens and music.
