TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Green thumbs from far and wide took over the Vigo County Fairgrounds.

That’s with the Wabash Valley Master Gardeners Association’s Gardeners Gathering.

Enthusiasts had access to vendors, expert speakers and gardening information geared toward their hobby.

One event organizer says it was a great opportunity for gardeners to swap information, especially considering the weather roller coaster that’s hit the area in the last few months.

“The cold weather that we hard recently, the people that are doing their gardening, their vegetable gardening, it doesn’t affect that,” said Robert Archer, Wabash Valley Master Gardeners Board Member, “but it does affect the fruit trees and some of the early perennials that come up.”

Archer says this is the first year the Master Gardeners Association has held an event quite like this.
