Garden Time is out and about again! Capitol Subaru Garden Dayz is back for our 15th year. It was canceled a few years ago, but we are now back to normal. This great event is taking place Saturday, May 20th between 11am and 3pm at the Capitol Subaru Pavilion, just off the Salem Parkway.

We stopped by the Capitol Event Pavilion to talk to our old friend Brian Schindler from the Capitol Auto Group. He told us that they love having this event. It gives them a chance to meet the public, even if they are not shopping for cars. It is not surprising that they sponsor this great community event, since Capitol has been involved in the community by supporting lots of different organizations, including Make a Wish, United Way and the American Cancer Society. You can check out a list of organizations they support here. They also have a dog park so your furry friends can stretch their legs, and a mile-long wildlife path if you need a larger stretch!

Brian also filled us in on all the great things you can find at the event. They will have food carts including a taco truck, a hotdog vendor and an ice cream truck. You can also pick up a cup of coffee at the Happy Heart Coffee Company. There will also be some great giveaways: There are three packs of garden vegetables for each guest who attends (while supplies last). They will also have ‘plantable’ pencils to hand out. These pencils can be planted when you are done using them and they will grow different veggies and flowers depending on the pencil you get. They will also have a sign up for a $100 gift card to Al’s Garden and Home. The drawing will take place at the end of the event and the winner will be notified. They will also have Subaru-labeled swag for people to pick up.

The Garden Time crew will also be there to meet and greet attendees. Stop by and visit our booth to enter a drawing for a $25 Al’s gift card. We will give out one card every half hour.

We will have a great group of garden plant and art vendors. Garden Thyme Nursery, Out in the Garden Nursery, Alpine Gardens, Embroidery Expressions, Branch Leaf Bloom, Mini Forest, Rita Lee's Nursery, Marilynn Russell Metal Art and Van Havelingen Herb Nursery. The Oregon Orchid Society will also be there and will do demonstrations and sell orchids. There will be a kid’s area where kids can take home a sweet pea kit for growing their own sweet pea flowers. The Oregon Humane Society will also be there with a professional dog trainer to answer your dog behavior questions.

Their pavilion is wide open and the weather is expected to be warm and sunny, and everything is under cover to protect you from the sun. Stop by and see us during this great event and say hi!
