With spring knocking at the door, gardeners are getting ready for the Native Heirloom Plant Fair, which will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, April 4, at the Stephenville Museum, located at 525 East Washington.

Event organizer Russell Pfau said the first of two informative presentations will begin at 11 a.m. 

“Designing with Natives is about using native plants in your landscape design,” Pfau said.

The second presentation, Naturescaping, begins at 1 p.m.

“It’s about landscaping with nature rather than against nature to attract wildlife like hummingbirds and butterflies,” Pfau said.

An Easter egg hunt will begin at 2 p.m. and a self-guided natural trail will be open all day.

In addition to the activities, approximately 12 vendors will be on hand with native plants, adapted plants, herbs, vegetables, books, seeds, arts and crafts.

Concessions will also be available.

Pfau said it’s not too late for vendors to sign up for the fair. Spaces are still available and free of charge. He is even accepting vendors for next year’s show.

“We’d like to know at least a couple days in advance, but we can accept vendors at the last minute,” Pfau said.

Admission is free and open to the public.
