The GROW Jamestown Garden Fair began in 2011 and has grown to a day-long event that brings together dozens of gardening, greening, and local farm vendors alongside home improvement contractors and community non-profits to showcase opportunities to support and celebrate the growing season!
The values of this event are:
Education: Provide public access to a wide range of workshops, exhibits, lectures, and other media that deliver information about:
Gardening and the role that gardening plays in fostering strong communities
Neighborhood revitalization and the role neighborhood revitalization plays in fostering strong communities
Collaboration: Cultivate relationships and partnerships between gardeners, property owners, businesses, organizations, and educators.
Programmatic Support: Share information for community members to get involved in volunteer opportunities and other programs operated by the Jamestown Public Market
Admission is free to the public.
Workshop presenters throughout the years have included the Roger Tory Peterson Institute; Audubon Community Nature Center; and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County.
