The outstanding Studio Garden for the award-winning Oklahoma Gardening TV Show, will be open for casual tours before and after the program. The classroom building will be open at 1pm with the speaker scheduled to start at 2pm. A short membership meeting will be held prior to the start of the program. Members are encouraged to donate gardening items for our annual silent auction which will be held that day.
