CCE-Tompkins hosts a number of public events each year that connect people with gardening of all kinds. These include our annual Spring Garden Fair & Plant Sale, the largest event of its kind in the Finger Lakes; a "Spring into Gardening" day filled with workshops on a range of garden topics; the Gardener's Pot Swap and Recycling Event; Open Days Garden Tours that open exceptional private gardens to the public for one day, and kitchen garden tours in which successful local vegetable gardeners welcome visits to tour their plots and ask questions.
Visit our pages in this section to learn more about these events, and be sure to check our our Upcoming Events section to find workshops in gardening of interest to you and your family!
Saturday May 18, 2019 is the date of our annual Spring Garden Fair & Plant Sale at Ithaca High School. Don't miss the largest event of its kind in the Finger Lakes, with 40 or more growers!
Each year, a selection of outstanding private gardens open their gates to the public for this one-day fundraiser that benefits our Community Beautification Program and national sponsor, The Garden Conservancy.
