Michigan State University Extension horticulture educators will be presenting smart gardening in a variety of ways at the Novi Cottage and Lakefront Living Show Feb. 21-24 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi and the West Michigan Home and Garden Show Feb. 28 - March 3 at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids.

These garden shows will host a variety of free seminars and informational booths and provide the chance to ask the experts from MSU Extension about gardening questions.

Smart gardening education will continue all year long with informational factsheets, videos and more on the Gardening in Michigan website.

Simply engaging tools such as a rain gauge, drip irrigation or a reel mower may, in fact, reduce your cost, your impact on the environment and what is commonly being referred to as your carbon footprint.
