OSU Extension of Medina County and the Master Gardener Volunteers present the 4th annual MGV Spring Seminar.  This year's theme is landscape design and modern twists.

Visit the rummage sale-style "Ye Olde Garden Shoppe" and purchase some gently used, repurposed or garden-themed items and tools (all proceeds support the OSU Phenology Garden in Medina) and get your copy of the book, "Garden-pedia: an A-Z guide to gardening terms," signed by author and educator Pam Bennett!  Books can be pre-ordered with registration or bought at the event (limited quantities will be available).
