CGC June 2017 Floral Exhibition Preparations

The day before the Floral Exhibition is judged the horticulture specimens and floral designs are brought in for placement. Our horticulture teams helps with plant id and with the correct paperwork required for submission. The designers bring in and place their work and some decide to complete their installation in situ. Hospitality gathers and prices all the homemade goodies for sale while creating the platters for light refreshments offered to our visitors. Our talented artists and artisans deliver their work for display and sale. This is a 12 hour day for many of our members.
