The Carroll County Master Gardeners hosted its first "Home Garden Day" at the ECHO cafeteria in Eureka Springs during its Gardening in the Ozarks conference last Saturday. It was a huge success with 81 gardeners attending from all over Arkansas and Missouri, organizers said. Speakers included Carroll County Extention Agent Randy Forst, who gave a presentation on "Perennials That Pack a Punch"; well-known Eureka Springs photographer and artist Edward C. Robinson, who spoke about his craft; Cody George, who spoke on his work as the creator of the beautiful gardens at Crystal Bridges Museum; and DonE Allen, who maintains the springs and surrounding parks and gardens in Eureka Springs.
