FRYEBURG – The Northern New England Home, Garden and Flower Show will fill seven major exhibit halls and occupy six acres with outside displays at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds the weekend of May 15-17.
More than 250 booths in the exhibit halls will showcase the newest energy-efficient products and services for the home and garden. Outdoor displays will include manufactured homes, power equipment, fencing, recreational sports equipment, commercial and specialized garden centers, landscape displays, crafters and artisans, Meet the Chefs cooking series and ongoing seminars.
“If it is information you are seeking, plants or veggie seedlings to purchase, great garden crafts or you just want a fun way to spend a spring weekend, this event should be high on your weekend schedule,” said show producer Karla Ficker.
Show attendees will find information on solar hot water heaters, geothermal and other innovative heating solutions, wind power and the next generation in insulation. They can listen to and talk with the experts at The Smart Home Owner Seminar series.
Lenders will be on hand to discuss new programs and tax credits available for first-time homeowners. Many of the energy-saving products available are eligible for a federal 30 percent tax credit.
Ten garden centers will sell a wide variety of perennials, annuals, vegetable seedlings, shrubs, trees, hardscape products and organics. Some returning speakers in the All Things Growing Garden Seminars Series are Amy LeBlanc, owner of Whitehill Farm, Wilton, and grower of heirloom tomatoes and herbs; Cyndy Tibbets of Hummingbird Farm; Beverly Hendricks of Deerwood Farms, Waterford; and Sue Sidwell of Old Stage Farm, Lovell.
