Due to the covid-19 virus the Vigo County Fair has a greatly reduce schedule for 2020.
In previous years we have done the following:
Daily during the annual Vigo County 4-H fair, the Master Gardeners provide the materials, instructions, demonstrations and supervision to conduct:
*Afternoon Make and Take Projects
In conjunction with the Master Gardeners, other groups that helped make this possible were Purdue Extension, Krogers, Dobbs Park and Jones & Sons.
The Master Gardener fair committee started meeting in January to plan for the activities. The activities are incorporated into programs for children and adults with garden related themes.
The making of stepping stones continues to be one of the most popular activities at the fair. Master Gardeners mix the cement and help children of all ages decorate the stepping stones. All materials are provided by the Wabash Valley Master Gardeners. Over 270 stepping stones were made at the 2019 Vigo County Fair.
Upcycled Garden Mushrooms and Wind Chimes as well as making flower arrangements were also make and take activities.
These activities are a fun learning experience for the community and make the fair an interesting place to visit. Every year we have more people that attend our sessions.
