My favorite thing about the Green Country Home & Garden Show is the price of parking and admission: $0.
I'm not a big home fixer-upper type, and when I think about gardening, I can only lament my inability to grow even the most user-friendly plants and herbs. A free home and garden show is perfect for someone like me with a low comprehension of all that is pretty dwellings and "outdoor living spaces," as well as for anyone with a tight home improvement budget (read: every homeowner who has managed to stay in a home - who cares if the lights are off and the air is a bit chilly?).
The 2009 show got its start yesterday afternoon and opened for the weekend at 9 this morning. The 6,000-square-foot Exchange Center at Expo Square, at 4145 E. 21st St., is filled with more than 100 exhibitors displaying and demonstrating the newest and hottest services for home improvement and repair, remodeling, gardening, landscaping, lawn care, home insulation and energy conservation, home security, home furnishings and more. Look also for coupons and giveaways throughout the event, including a drawing for a $5,000 Lowe's gift card.
Festival hours are today, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and tomorrow 11 a.m.-5 p.m. See a list of the 2009 exhibitors here. Event information from Tulsa's own krmg.com.
